REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

For 87 years the Biblical ecorder has been the organ of North 
Carolina Baptists. Dui'Ing all this time it has given its influence 
t.o the promotion of every department of denominational work, 
tis columns are used freely hy the servants of the denomination 
who have charge of our institutions and varied enterprises. 

The paper is true to its name. It is bi'bilical in its teachings 
and records t!he acts of NortJh Carolina Baptists from week to 
week. It stands for the truth as Baptists hold and interpret it 
and is always ready to gp to the defense of our great princiiples 
when necessity demands it. 

But the ecorder is more than a denominatiional organ. It is a 
family paper as well. Its columns cany wholesome matter into 
the family circle. It takes note of current events and puhlishes 
a digest of the most important things that occur during the week. 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



News letters Irom the churches are a very important and helpful 
feature of t\he paper and tlhe news note page gives m pithy para- 
o-raphs the doings of our great Baptist family. The last page ot 
the Reccrder is for the home and great care is taken in selectmg 
matter for this page. 

The Recorder is owned .by a joint stock company. It was or- 
mnized a,t the request ct the Ocnvemtion 20 years ago to own and 
puMish the paper. But while it is under private owtiership a 
committee of seven appointed by the Convention acts with the 
seven directors when tlhe election of an editor is necessary. Tfhis 
p^uts the selection of an editor practically in the hands of the 

Ctonvention. 

The directors fo-umd lit .albsolutely necessary to raise the price 
of the paper on August 1st to $2.50. They regretted very deeply 
the necessity which forced them to take this step. But the two 
alternatives were to iincrease the price or to reduce the size. The 
Recorder was not maik:,ng expenses at $2.00 a year. Most of tlhe 
papers raised the price to $2 50 be-fcre the Recorder took this step. 
The directors pnomised isacredly .that as soon as c/Dnditions warrant 
them in going back to the old price they will do so. 

The Reco^iider niianagement has made a proposition to the 
churches which will make it possible for them to keep the price 
at $2 00 per year. If a church will put the Recorder In thres- 
fo-urths ;0'f the resident families and -send the name of one m 
each family to whom the paper is to be sent, together with a 
check to cover the amount of su'bscription, the paper will be 
sent to each individual ^s at present for $2.00 per year. If a 
church finds it more conyenient to pay in monthly or quarterly m- 
staMments, the management will accept that method of payment. 

A &ood mamv churches are putting the Recorder in the budget. 
A collection is taken for the Recorder fund just as is done for 
State Missions, orany other object, and the paper is sent to the 
ones whose names are forwarded. If a church shall adopt the 
budget plan and see that the Recorder goes into 75 per cent of 
the hiom'es the isubscription price will be $2.00. 

The Recorder is essential to the progres ol our work and it 
exerts a very w^holesome influence in the home. We earnestly 
urge our churches to accept the liberal offer made by the manage- 
ment and secure the paper at $2.00 per year.

We consider ttoe Sunday School a great work in the church 

Orphanage and the >cause of Ohrist. The church would be at a 

very gi^at loss without it. The members who come into the 

church from the Sunday Scbc^l are among its best members. THey 

have been trained to Work and to give. If you will notice in all 

our churches, yo,u willl find the members wlho attond Sunday School 

do the greater part of the giving to all objects. You will find tihem 

ever ready to help support the Orphanage. F^r the cause of 

Ohrist the members from Sunday School are the most zeaJ^us

HOME MISSION REPORT. 

The foundation of America are fundamentally religious, and 
the only spirit which 'may he tinisted adequately to safeguard 
them is that of Christian patriotism. 

Following the World War and in the midst of Reconstruction 
problems, thousand's of our people have made a new dedication of 
themselves to this Christian Americanism, and in no section more 
than in the South, whiere the largest proportion of native Americans 
reside. They purpose to safeiguard American liberties by safe- 
guarding that faith which alone made those liberties possible, and 
to keep lighted in America a beacon of liberty which shall shine 
out across the seas to 'cheer and bless people's who grope in dark- 
ness. 

Christian Americanism is the work of Home Missions, which by 
bringing men to Christ, creates that righteousness that exalteth 
a nation. Our Baptist Home Mission Board is the outstanding 
agency of Southern Baptists for making America Christian. It has 
a great record of successful service, but is now entering on a time 
of even larger opportunity and need. 

In 1919 the missionaries of our Board baptized one convert for 
every three re'ceived into our Churches. Regularly they baptize 
from twenty to twenty-five percent as many converts as the entiro 
as the entire number who enter our Churches. For fifteen years 
its Evangelists have averaged 450 'baptisms per year per worker, 
a record far out-stripping that of any other similar agency. Its 
system of Mountain Schools is larger than any other and is the 
acknowledged standard in adaptability. Its Enlistment work is 
rapidly bringing a more adeuate standard of spiritual instiniction 
and effectiveness in hundreds of Churches. Its Church Extension 
work has grown from infancy to lusty strength in a period of only 
a few years. 

Recently the Board has also fair surpassed its own fine record. 
Within the last seven yeai*s of its history of seventy-five years 
its missionaries have baptized 94.5 percent as many converts as 
were baptized in the firs<t sixty-eight years. 

In soul-winning and nation-serving; in teaching the truth of 
Christ and conserving it; in building Christians up and maturing

for the State the type of character that makes our Republic great, 
and in the end, must save it from disintegration, our Board has 
been wonderfully used of God. 

Every loyal Baptist will rejoice in the admirable efforts of our 
Board to meet the cr'c'ucial needs of these d'aj^s enlarging its work. 
At its: Annual Meetimg in Atlianta in June, after long and pains- 
taking efforts to reduce the appropriations as far as possible, the 
brethren of the Board found that $2,000,000 was necessary for tho 
woTk of the preseait year. Even with this appropriation, it had 
to decline many worthy iappeals to enter wide open doors. 

We commend our Board for its faith and vision in grappling 
the stupendous tasks that now confront us and in believing that 
our people will respond to such leadership. We recommend that 
constant prayers be made for the Board, for its missionaries and 
for its work, and that we give it large and sustained' support 
through our gifts to the 75 Millian Campaign. 

We commend to our people the aJdmirable Mission Study Books 
of the Boarld, throiugh which a true view is' presented of the large 
problems we 'donfront, and recommiend that psators, superintend- 
ents, mission Society leaders and others write often for the large 
and" splendid asisortmient of free tracts aibout its work and the 
needs, which our Board gladly furnishes on reuest. 

The executive officer of the Board is Dr. B. D. Gray, Correspond- 
ing Secretary, iHJealey Building, Atlanta, Ga. For tracts, books, in- 
formation, etc., address Publicity Department, Baptist Home Mis- 
sion Board, Healey Building, Atlanta, Ga.

S. N. Watson read the report on Foreign Missions. 

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISJ^IONS 

It is hardly neicessary now to engage in argument to convince 
the people cf Gcd that missionary work is a leading duty of all 
Christian organizatiiions and all servants of our Lord. 

No one who i.s without prejudice can read the New Testament 
and fall to see the clear and unmistakable teaclhing of onr Master 
and his early followers with regard to the Christian's duty in this 
respect; and aside from the obligation which is so plain, mission- 
ary effort lis one of the highest privileges that a servant iof Christ 
can enjoy. 

Our blessed Lrrd himself was the gr?atest of all foreign mis- 
sionaries. He came down from heaven to redeem a lost world. 
He was always a missionary in spirit, example, and by precept. 
He commanded, saying, "Go teach" (make disciples of) "all the 
nations" (Mat\ 28:19). Tlve early Christians, scattered by perse-

'•'ttion, fwent about preiach:ng the gospel. Philip went down to the 
, TV of Samaria and preached Christ unto them. Simon Peter, 
thougn at first so narrow and rebellious, went and proHjlaimed the 
vVord of Life to Cc.rnelius and others (Afcts, chapters 8-10). 

Saul and BarnaiDas were "separated" by the Holy Spirit, in 
the church at Antioch for the foreign mission work (Acts 13). 
Subsequently, Paul, the greatest foreign missiionary in the world 
(excepting Jesus) travelled thr^ouighout the Roman Empire, preach- 
ing and es'taJblishing ichurc'hes. 

All along tlhe pas'sdng centuries, men and women, called of 
God, have labored suffered, and saicrlficed life itself, in the great 
work of evangelizing the lost ones of earth. And just as Paul, 
Silas, Timothy, and others, gave themselves, in the outset, to this 
sacred cause, so the m'odem missionaries have gone forth, are 
still &oing, or wanting to go, to tell c.f Jesus to those who kno-w 
Him not. 

Nor has the good hand f Grod ever failed to rest upon them, 
in power 'and great blessing. The statistics of tlhe Foreiign Mission 
Board, published May, 1920, show we have 542 churches in foreign 
lands, cne-tfio'urth of which are self-supporting, more than half ,of 
which worship in houses owned either by the Board or by these 
churdbes. 

6, 834 were baptized during 1919, the largest number ever re- 
ported in a single year. The total membership has now reached 
57,438, about three-fcurthis as miany as there are Baptists in Arkan- 
sas or Oklahoma. 

These native cliurcbe'S contributed last year $242,460, which rep- 
resents a gift oif $4.22 per member. This is a good showing, when 
compared with tlhe per capita gifts by Southern Baptists. The re- 
port of May, 1919, shews Southern Baptists gave $6.19 per member. 

The Sunday Stehcols now number 836, with an enrollment of 
47 672 scholars. Comparing the number of Sunday S'chool scholars 
w^ith the toital mem)bershiip, we have 83 per cent enrolled in Sunday 
Schools abroad, and 70 per cent enrcaied in Sunday Schools in 
cur Southern Baptist Convention territory. 

The school w'ork ihas grown wonderfully. Last year the board 
had 554 sicbctols of all grade's, from kindergarten to Theological 
Seminary, into which were gathered 18,514 students. These schools 
serve espeicialHy two great ends: They offer a fertile field for 
direct evangeMiStic effort and a training ground for the develop- 
ment of leaders. In these sichools a very large per cent of our 
converts are made, and of 'course, fr,om them must come the 
leaders. It is enicouraging to note that in our ten Theological 
Training Schools tlhere were enrolled 345 students. 

We can hardly realize the sweep and importance of the mediical 
work. We are astonished to know that our fourteen medical

missionaries (coaild g^ive 205,098 treatmetns during 1919, but they 
did, and preaicHied the igospei to many a patient under favorabde 
oondi'ti'onis and sent ithe m/essage linto many a home wMich might 
have remained closed but for the effective work of the mdical 
missionary. 

The fioirelgn missionary foroe rose to 341 during the year. T^liiis 
was met a great gain in foreign missionaries, biut there was a 
gain of 208 Hn the numiber of native missionaries, who now num- 
ber 979. 

The 75 MllJon Oaanpaign has briught a new day to the work 
of our great Board. It has hellped the Board profoundly among 
the churches abT'oad. Oui" fioreign churcheis were 'so greatly in- 
spired by the camipaign ait home tlliat similar campaigns were 
organized in all our fieids and more than a miillion doll'aris were 
pledged in these foreign lanids. This is most significant for 
the future development of theis'e churches. 

I would not close this report wiithoiut making mention of the 
fact that ait a meeting lot the Board, held June 10, 1920, forty-nine 
-'\ew missionaries were appointed and sixteen more were ap- 
pointed at the July meeting. A large percentage of these sailed 
on the 17th of Augutet for Clhina and Japan. This party, including 
a number of old 'misisionaries' familiies returning to their work 
from furlC'Ugh, was the largest missionary party ever sent out on 
one ship by any F;oreign Mission Board. 

Thns the work growfe under the favor of God. We see how it 
expands and we rejoice. Shall we not make His (praise even 
more glorHous <by pressing forward now in the day of ciur great 
advantage until "the whole earth shall be filled with the knowledge 
of the glory of God as t[he waters cover the sea."

STATE MISSIONS. 

Missions is a part of our God given task. The Savior said: 
"Ye shall be witneslses unto me in Jerusalem and in all Judea and 
in Samaria and unto the uttermost parts of the earth." This in- 
cludes the home fchurch, the Stlate, Home and Foreign Missions. 
It is all the Lord's work. We should stop discriminating. ''The 
field is the world." Our iState is a worthy part of it. 

The work is carried on through a Bcward of Missions of North 
Carolina, located at Raleigh, and is composed of 21 members ap- 
pointed by the Baptist State Convention, and one member from 
each of the 67 Associations in the Convention. This work is di- 
rected by a State S'ecretatry, W. N. Johns.

Specific Tasks of State Missions. 

1. In iNorth Cairolina there are a million lost souls calling us 
to the w!ork of Evangelism. Eviangelism wUll always be funda- 
mental. To isave the lost and to help weak Churches, we had last 
year 170 men employied and partially supported' by the State whj 
raported 1,478 conversion and 1,012 baptisms,. 

2 . The State Board co-operates with the Home Board in aiding 
Church buildin>gs in needy and important iplaces. Our Board spent 
over $4,000 last year when $20,000 is neded every year. 

3. Our Colportage work is growing. Miss Gaynell Yatss looks 
after it. Order all needed books from her at Raleigh. 

The primary object of Colporage Department is the extesion of 
the Biiblical Recorder. 

4. The mobile schools have come to stay. They are largely 
the thought of our iretiring 'Secretary, who expects to give his life 
in the building of induistrial schools and connect lives with King- 
dom building — a noble mission. 

There were 48 mobile sichools last year, 304 teachers, 895 stu- 
dents. The study of Stewardship and Miissions was worth the 
entire 'cost — $5,219.52. There were 27 schools this year, used to 
conserve the 75 Milliion Campaign. 

Our pasitors, workers, and preparation workers, should go and" 
encourage others to go. Our next school will be held at Caroleen, 
plan to be there next summer. 

5. Woman's work is stimulative and helpful. In the Southern 
Baptist Convention there are 16,000 Societies. All money contrib- 
uted by the women and children to the objects of the Convention 
is counted by W. M. U. Last yeSar W. M. U. gave $2,477,763.42. 
The young people raised one million. 

6. The work of tra,lning in Church membership is carried on 
in the B. Y. P. U. It Is a vitally important department of State 
Missions. J. D. Moon, of Raleigh, is our efficient Secretary. Every 
pastor should see to it that there is a B. Y. P. U. in his Church. 

7. The Sunda School work under 'Secretary Middleton and his 
associate, . H. Couch, has made rajiid progres^s. Through the 
agency of the State Mission Board many thousands of Sunday 
Schools have been organized for the teaching of the people, thou- 
sands have been enlisted and trained to be teachers in the schools 

State Missdons is fundamental. It gives us the Recorder, Wake 
Forest, Mereid'ith, the Orphanage, our relationship to Home and 
Foreign Missions, the endowment of all our activities. 

Our Associational allotment of the 75 million is $140,000. Bro. 
Tate, or chairman, took pledges to the -amount of $112,069.18. Four- 
teen Churches made no report to him. 

Your Committee would recommend that Bro. W. T. Tate's report 
be heard, and that he remain our permanent chairman for the 75 
Million Campaign for the five years and that the chairman of last

'pledges due be collected and that pledges be secured in llhai ches

oe done at once, and for each of the succeeding years of ': lis 
campaign.

W. M. Gold read the report on Orphanage. 

ORPHANAGE REPORT. 

On November 11, 1885, the first chldl was received. The last 
one enrolled this year runs the numiber up to 2,000. 

Some months we receive as many as fifty applicajtions. Most 
'■«f them are turned away for lack of room. It costs $197.14 a year 
to support ;one ichild, not including building and repairs. 

Children are received between the ages of two and twelve and 
dismissed according to preparation, rather than age. 

Charity and Children, as :its organ, is the right arm of the in- 
stitution. The business cf the job department has beetn consid- 
erably increased. Twelve boys are em'ployed in this department 
ofr half time. Only ahout one^third lof our Baiptist Sunday Schools 
take Charity and Children in club's. We are ainxious to ihcrease 
this numb.er. We ouglit to have a club in every Sunday School 
m the state. Those who take the paper in single subscription 
contribute more to the Or(phanage, tham those w)ho get it in dubs. 
Price $1.00 a year or in clubs .of ten or more to one address 60 
cents a year. 

The Kennedy Home Is situated in Lenoir County six miles from 
Kinstoin. Three dormiitories have been built there; 88 children 
occupy thenii. During the lifetime of Mr. Kennedy the Orphanage 
pays a rental of $2,000.00 for the farm. After paying this rent the 
profit of the past year was above $5,000.00. 

We have 2,000 Sunday Schools in tflie state. About 40 per cenr 
.of the current fund comes from about one-third of them. 

The school work is on the graded system and emibraces ten 
grades. The children go to s'chool half the day and work the 
other half. There is two sets of teachers, one for the morning 
and one for the afternoon. Tw/^ ladies in each dormitory, teacher 
and matron. The teacher has charge in matters of authority. 

Eighteen men ratified hy the Baptist State Convention compose 
the Board of Trustees. These men, who are busy with their own 
private affairs, make the sacriifice of time and money to attend 
the meetings of the b.oard. They are not paid one cent for 
their service.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION. 

Since the days of Elisha, who taught the school of the prophets, 
ChiiiStian education ha.s been an impoirtant factor in .the Church 
life. We d'o not discredit in the least the work done by our State 
choolss, but we have to look to our denominational schools for 
most of our Church lead'ers. Our State S'c'h'ool professors, are not 
i-equired to the Christians, but one of the main requirements of 
our den'0.minational teachers is, that they have a high type of 
(christian cliaracter. We see from tliis how essential to the de- 
velopment of our Churches that we support our Christian schools. 

Southern Baptists have recently cpeneid lan office and established 
a Clearing 'House upon Christian Eiducation. In the office will be 
found correspondence upon various phases of education; catalogs 
and publications from i&chools and boards; a coUectio nof tracts, 
pamphlets and books upon education; classified statistics, etc. 

With this information largely as a basils, there have been pre- 
pared and printed many articles on educational matters, hundreds 
of inquiries have been answered, a monthly periodical has been 
published, and thousiandis of tracts have been distributed. 

This board is also, through the pastors, endeavoring to get in 
touch with all the prospective Baptist students, to show them 
the advantages they will have in attending our own Baptist schools. 

$1,466,667 has been desiignated by the 75 Million Campaign 
Committee for the Baptist schools in North Carolina. This is 
small amount in comparison to the needs of our schools. A great 
many sichools of other denominations have recently gone down 
bc'eaiise they were not provided with equipment equal to the 
State schools, esipecially is this true with many of their high 
schools If we expect to keep our institutions going, we must at 
least equal the State schools in equipment. 

We, of course should' be interested in our colleges and semi- 
naries, hut we should especially be concerned about our own 
school, boiling Springs. Your Committee wishes to urge the 
C hurches which have not done anything in a financial way for 
Boiling Springs School, to give this your prayerful attention, for 
this is really a part of the kingdom work. 

We also ask that you look into the needs of all our Baptist 
schools and then do your duty toward them accordiingly.

term is 'Uised here to eteonomize space in minutes. 

On May 12th last oloseid the most successful year in the his- 
tory of the eicho'cl. The total enrollment was 366, this 'being 51 in 
exceiss cf previous year. Qould easily have had from 100 to 150 
more with ad&quate accommodations. 

There were 24 in graduatinig class, 11 beys and 13 girls. Total 
numibe'r of graduates since beginning of school, 181. Unfortunately 
too few take the full four-year course. 

The expenis'es 'of ;iopeTating school for last year were a(s fol- 
loiws:lows: Salaries ef teaJchers, $7,107.05; boarding 'department, 
$16,399.64; incidental expenseis, $7,184.46; and eqiiipment and per- 
manent imiprovements, $2,612.96, making a grand total of $33,304.07. 
Teh total receipts for the year weire $31,533.59. Theer is yet due 
a balance of $2,336.49, all of which is tlhought to be collectible. If 
all is colleicted there will ibe a scrplus of $566.01, which added to 
the surplus lof $76.46 cf the previous year, will make a tota of 
$642 27, to aippy to permanent improvements. The average price 
of iboarl for the year was $11.00 per month. 

The present term openel August 10th with an unuisually large 
attendance the first day. All rooms for girls were assigned before 
en dof first week. The housing of additional teachers and the 
closing of Siome private homes to roomers,, have decreased our 
accoimmodations for students. Hope to overcome thife, to some 
extent 'by the beginnong of another year. If we have many more 
students now neither the class roioms nor the dining room would 
be adequate. . If we h-ad more teachers we would not have class 
rooms for them. 

The ennollment to date Is as follows: Intermediate depart- 
ment, 47; Fre'shman department, 91; Sophomore, 62; Junior, 46; 
and Senior, 33, making a total of 288 to date. Of this number 152 
are girls and 136 boys. There are 2'19 boarding students. Students 
from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Mis- 
sissippi; sixteen counties in North CarO'lina and six in Scnth Caro- 
Mna are represented. There are 275 church members in the stu- 
dent body, re'presenting four Protestant deniominaitions, Baptist 
largely predominating. By countieis 171 are from Cleveland, Ruth- 
erford, 49, and Gastcn 12. By Associations the are, 129 from Kings 
Mountain, 50 from Sandy Run and 8 from Gaston. 

Special departments: Bible, 118; music, 117; art, 30; household 
arts, 41; and expression, 22. All auxiliaries of the school are 
doing god work, espec*ially the B. Y. P. U. There are 10 worthy

To conform with the schedules prepared by the State Baptist 
Educational Boaid for the secondary schools and t meet the in 
crRased pay of teachers and tlaer expenses, an increase has been, 
made in tuition rates. For c>bvi/Dus reasons, all expenses tnip. 
vear aie made payiaijie puarterly in advance. We believe parents- 
will find this method highly satisfactory. Its value has already 
V-en demonstrated. 

Fn ad-cLtion to the $40,000 set apart by the cnurehes for the 
M'^morial Building, the State Educational Board has apportioned 
^o (AW school fr^Don the 75 Millicn Cain^paign, a total sum of $16,500. 
♦o be applied as follows: $6,000 to purchase Buoys' Dormitory, 
Moore Cottage, and steam heating plants; $500 to buy a cnemical 
laboratory; and $2,000 a year for five years to meet current ex- 
penses.

vear. Miss Lela Morris succeeded Miss Delia Stamey, resigned,

^rof. H. D. Powers, a Wake Forest graduate, is a new member. 

Work on the Memorial Building is now under way and is being 
P^esised- rapidly. Hope to get brick work completed and under 
rover before the severe weather of winter. Contracts for labor 
and material have been placed to the anxount of subscriptions in 
sierht. Owing to the remarkable increase in price of labor and 
raajterial since planning for this building, it will reguire approxi- 
mately $20,000 additional to complete the building. Your Board 
Pi*omised ycu to create no debts on tlhis building beyond money in 
sight. This promise it will faithfully carry .out unless otherwise 
advised 'by the Associatrons at the present sessions. Some imme- 
diate action should be taken. Uncompleted t,he building will be 
of no value. 

Terms of Trus-tees expire this year as follows: Kings Moun 
tain: W. W. Waishburn, J. D. Putnam (dead), Rev. J. W. Suttle, 
E. C. Borders, and Rev. W. R. Beach. Successors to M. A. Stroup 
(term ends 1921) and N. B. Kendrick (term ends 1922) must b^ 
elected on account of the granting of letter to Cherryville Churcii 
to join Gaston Association. Sandy Run Association: T. M. Hol- 
land, M. M. Green, P. R. Green, A. I. Jolly and G. S. Hawkins. 

The opportunities of the student body for Christian training 
and activities will be greatly enhanced by tihe erection by the local 
church of a beautiful, comm,adions and well-planned house of w^or- 
ship. It will be a credit to the community, a blessing to the 
school and an honor to the Master.

RESOLUTION. 

At tlie request of the meimbers of the Mobil© School with Ruth- 
lerfordton Baptist Church July, 1920, the Executive Board of Green 
IRiver and Sandy Runn Assiooiations met in Rutherfordlon Baptist 
Church ^epiember 10, 1920, to consider the matter of securing 
an Enlistment Evamgelist for work in the two Asso^ciations. 

The advisabliiity of securing an Enlistment Eivangelist for the 
two Assiociations were carefully considered and fully discussed, 
and the undersigmeid were i^quested to present the following 
Tesoluticm. 

Whereas there is gr-eait need, in the Churches of the Green 
Hiver and' Sandy Runn Associations, of better organization and an 
awakened interest in Sunday School and Young People's Work, 
and the salvation of the lost at home and abroad; therefore be 
it resolved: 

(1) That it is the sense and opinion of the Executive Boards 
of the Green River and Sandy Run Associations, that an Enlist- 
ment Evangelist, for the two Asisoiciations, is vitally needed to 
liokl enlistanent evangelistii'c meetings with our Churches, and in 
co-operation with the pastoirs better organ'ize and develop them in 
all lines of our orgianized work, and to secure the co-operation 
of the pastors and Churches in patronizing and supporting the 
Christian Schools in the two Associations. 

(2) That the two Associations, through their Executive Boards, 
secure the co-operation and aid of the State and Home Mission 
Boards in the support of an Enlistment Evangelist to the amount 
of two-thirds of tlie salary, and that the two Associations agree 
to raise one-third of the salary, and this to be paid, as far as 
possible, by ^cOntriT>utions from Churches with which the Enlist 
ment Woiiker holds meetings. 

(3) That all contriibutions given 'by the Churches for the sup- 
port of the Enlistment Evangelistic work be sent to the Treasurer 
of the State Convention, where it will be credited on Missions to 
the Church sending it. 

(4) That it is the opinion and request of the two Executive 
Boards, that the two Associations adopt a resolution asking the 
State and Home Mission Boards to co-operate with the Executive 
Boards in securing an Enlistment Evangelist worker, to enter on 
the work at the beginning of the next Convention year. 

(5) That should the Enlistment Evangelist be secured the 
work sholl be under the dire?c!bion of the Executive Boards and the 
Enlistment Worker, 

(6) That these resolutions be presented to the Associations 
at their next meeting for their consideration and approvals

BEPORT ON MINISTERIAL SUPPORT 

Tlie Ccmmatee on Mmisterial Support submit the following: 
That while it is generally conceded tha^, our pastors are the 
poorest paid class of people accoTding to their efLicicncy for goad 
Jhat we have amoag us; 

First of all, we 'would call especial attention to what is taught 
In the Scriptures as to the duty of supporting those who preach 
Ihe G-ospel. Becau-sc we helieve that if the Scriptures teach any 
*one thing plainer than another it is this. 

We are glad to be able to report that for the last few years 
there has been a steady increa'se in the support of ministerial 
work. 

We would recommend that the parents divide treir contribu- 
t-on to the support tof their pas^'ors among the several members

Ministerial Relief, report read by the Moderator. Re- 
port adopted. 

MINISTERIAL RELIEF 

There is now a few hundred preachers receiving Help from the 
Board hut the amount is smiall. The old ministers who hare laid 
the ofundation of the Church in this country are the heroes the 
day. The country preacher who rides, drives or walks hundreds of 
miles during the year to do their work of today are the heries of 
today. Preaching to country Churches for a very small salary. 
There is Chui<ches in Wesftern Noirth Carolinia who piay their pastor 
much better and furnish them with parsonage and furnishings. 

Other ipreachers who have no home furnished them, rent a 
home and get less than $500.00 per ye^r. iNow it is said that the 
last named farm too much to preach, preach too much to farm. 
We should see to it that all poor preachers who have faithfully 
labored for Christ, be adequately provided for in their declining 
days. All preachers who are called of God are worthy of the bread 
they eat and the clothes they wear. The Baptist people of the 
South should see that they are well provided for with such things 
as will make them comifortable. 

No one knows ^he bard life of a preacher but himself. Now

kt us appreciate the work done by these preachers and do our 
duty.

REPORT ON BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLES' UNION 

The B. Y. P. U. has proven a blessing to eveiT Church where 
it has existed and the work carried out. It is the Training Camp 
r : the iChurch. WliCia this great nation of ours was about to enter 
the re'cent World War, it sent it's men to the cantonments to be 
trained in the art of soldieiT. so that they might serve their country 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 25 

In a more effiicient and effective manner. 

The B. Y. P. U. is the Cantonment, or Training Camp of tbo 
Churcli, where our future leaders are trained and prepared to tsXe 
the place of the piresent leadeTs in the Church. 

The Church today has alimst unlimited op'portunities, and these 
cpportuniti'es hring grave responsibilities. This is an age of cr- 
ganization, and to accomplish anything worth while we must have 
some system and coin!c^rt our activitieis. In order that our Churches 
make the pToper proigress in the advanicement of the Kingdom we 
must not neglect the organizaa:ions that train our young people for 
'service, and Jnarshals our forces for the conflict against sin. We- 
"know of no oiganizaition which offers more opportunities for de- 
veloping the young Chiristians iMo earnest efficient and consecrated 
laborers in the Master's Kingdom, than the Baptist Young Peoples' 
Union. 

Your As'siociati'onal organiser has been handicapped on account 
•cff lack of time to devote to the work, and has only organized 
three new Unions during the year, viz; One at Caroleen; one at 
Alexander, and one at Avondale. On Sunday evening, October 
3rd at the Baptist Church in Rutherfordton a B. Y. P. U. Rally 
was held. A very interesting program was rendered by the Ruther- 
fordton Union, after which Miss Rebbekah M'dClain, President of 
the local Union, presented the matter of organizing a County 
Unin urging all the Unions in the County to join. All the repre- 
sentatives of the Unions present were unanimously in favor of the 
movement and the organization was perfected with your Field 
Organizer as President. We feel that this is a long step forward 
for the work of the Union. The im eatings will he held quarterly, 
meeting next with the Cliffside Union the first Sunday in January. 
A pennant will be awarded to the Union making the best grade, 
or attaining; the highest standard of excellence and organizing the 
largest number of new Unions. 

The Association, we think, shoul dhave at least one organizer 
who can devote some time to the work. The need is urgent, and 
we recommend that this phase of the work be stressed more, and 
an effort be made to onganize a B. Y. P. U. in every church in the 
Sandy Run Association, 

R E. Roach be continued as organizer. 

Respectfully sumbitted, 
B. E. ROACH, 
T. M. MELTON. 

On motion the Clerk be instructed to have the Minutes 
printed and distributed and that he be allowed twenty- 
five dollars for his services.

REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS 
We, the Committee on Sunday Schools, beg leave to report that 
so far as we have been able to learn, the Sunday School work is 
making some progress. We have failed to interest a large per cent 
of our people, so as to get them lined up with us, but those who 
are really interested are doing a great work, for which we all feel 
proud. Our people are seeing the need of better equipment. If 
our Sunday Schools are to become as efficient as they need to be 
for such a day as this, we must never let up in Churches and Bap- 
tist Schools until our Sunday Schools are as well taught, at least, 
as any other schools in the State. A work that is of as much 
importance as teaching the Bible to all ages, from eariy childhood 
on to old age, ought to cause more of our teachers to look after 
the matter of better preparing themselves for this work. 
Respectfully submitted,

REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

For eighty-eight years the Biblical Recorder has been going on 
its mission as the silent messenger of North Carolina Baptists. 

During this time it 'has given its influence to promote every de- 
partment of denominational work. It has been one of the great 
agencies in putting over the 75 Million Dollar Campaign, and will 
have a great part in the collection of same. 



6 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

Its pag-es are open to all the servants of the Lord in our Baptist 
family, and are used freely to discuss the problems of denomi- 
T:ati(mal work. 

The paper is true to its name, it is Biblical in its teachings and 
jecords the acts of North Carolina Baptists from week to week, and 
Wring's to its readers the needs of the denomination in kingdom 
V oil;. It stands for the truth as Baptists hold and interpret it 
and earnestly contends for the faith once delivered to the saints, 
:\n<] is ready to defend our great principles when needs demand. 
The Recorder has often hung out the red lanterns of danger. When 
the lion of false doctrine was in our midst, and always strived to 
liold up the Banner of our Lord Jesus Christ of which all Baptists 
should rally around the standard. 

Its columns carry wholesome literature into the family circle, it 
takes note of current events and publishes news of importance that 
occurs during the week. News letters from the brethren and 
churches are a very important and helpful feature. 

There are letters from our brethren, some we have known per- 
sonally, others not known, yet loved. 

This is a reading age and people are buying literature, yet some 
think the price of the Recorder high, which is only $2.00 per year, 
but some of the most expensive literature known is that false or 
filthy in its teachings, it often destroys both soul and body. Take 
heed, brethren, what we read as a denominational organ. No Bap- 
tist should stop short of reading his denominational paper and be 
informed as to what the Baptists are doing. We urge that all 
pastors press the claims of the Recorder on their flock, and we 
suggest that a committee be appointed in each church to secure , 
subscribers for the Recorder.

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE AND PUBLIC MORALS 
That a mighty wave of sin and immorality is sweeping over the 
country the most optimistic cannot deny. Many preachers face 
small audiences, while dance halls, picture shows, vaudeville and 
all places of worldly amusement are crowded. It is reported that 
some of our schools that are supposed to teach God's word and 
stand for Baptist principles are employing teachers who engage 
in card playing. It seems to this committee that there must be 
some reason for this state of affairs. The family life of our mem- 
bers lays the foundation for this decay. Then the slackness in 
discipline on the part of the churches set the pace for the world. 
The only remedy for the present conditions is for our Church 
people to live a consistent, Christian life.

D. J. Hunt read the report on Education. 

The Board of Education, located in Raleigh, is co-ordinated with 
the Board of Missions and Sunday School, and all our benevolent 
operations, save that of the Orphanage. While the Mission Board 
overlooks our Mission and Sunday School work of all kinds, the 
Board of Education overlooks our educational work of all kinds. 

As first constituted, this board's only object was the assistance 
of young ministerial students at Wake Forest College and the 
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. It still continued this 
service, and has included also young women in our North Carolina 
Baptists colleges who are preparing for service on the foreign 
fields, and students in our Bible Institute in New Orleans. The 
board expended on these objects during the last Convention year 
$13,801.95. 

But six years ago the Board of Education was reorganized and 
enlarged, its functions were evtended and a Corresponding Secre-

tary was elected to give his whole time to its service. These larger 
functions included the oversight and support of our five Baptist 
hig-h schools and three Baptist colleges in the State. The high 
schools employed during the last session fifty-one teachers and 
enrolled 1,714 students. The three colleges employed seventy-four 
teachers and enroPed 1,095 students. Our high school property is 
valued at 381,100; our college property, including plants, equip- 
ment and endor, mentSj is appraised at $1,202,362. 

In addition to the above institutions, the Home Mission Board, 
Atlanta, is maintaining eight high schools in Western North Caro- 
lina. These schools employed last year sixty-four teachers, enrolled 
1,759 students, and reported property valuation of $476,329, making 
a total valuation of Baptist school property in the State of 
$2,059,791. 

We also take part in the support of our Theological Seminary 
at Louisville, the Southwestern Seminary in Texas, a Woman's 
Training School in connection with each of these institutions and a 
Bible Institute in New Orleans. 

The Baptists, within the bounds of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention, own and control nine colleges for men, eleven for women, 
seven for both men and women, seventeen junior colleges and sixty- 
five academies or high schools. These institutions together enrolled 
last year 31.557 students and own property valued at $21,109,611.00. 

Our growing appreciation of the value and need of Christian 
Education is indicated by the fact that of the 75 Million Dollars 
aimed at in our recent campaign, over one-fourth was to be set 
apart for Christian Education. 

Your Board of Education has paid out, up to September 15th, to 
our North Carolina colleges, $403,130.00; to our Baptist high 
schools, $73,875.96, and to our southwide institutions, $57,180.50. 

In spite of the deep financial depression, our North Carolina 
colleges and schools had good openings, some reporting their in- 
ability to accommodate a number of applicants. These facts, taken 
with the steady multiplication of high schools by the State and the 
rapidly increasing number of high school graduates from both 
State and denominational academies, indicate that we must keep 
enlarging our accommodations both in academies and colleges or 
else turn our boys and girls over to be educated by the State or 
other denominations. 

The Board of Education is endeavoring to build up a system of 
education in North Carolina composed of high schools, junior col- 
leges and a standard college each for young men and young wo- 
men; a system in which there shall be not competition, but sym- 
pathy and co-operation.

nat'onal work and the interdependence of each upon the other. 
Lay stress on the fact that we are helping to educate every year 
in our Baptise schools about 120 young men and women who are 
preparing for the ministry either at home, or on the foreign fields. 
Stress the need of laborers in these fields, and urge the Churches 
to pray for the calling of more ministers and more missionaries.

the Boiling Springs High School. On motion to adopt, 
remarks by Dr. R. T. Van and J. H. Quinn. Report 
adopted. 

To the Kings Mountain and Sandy Run Baptist Associations: 

The fourteenth year of our school closed April 18th. Consider- 
ing the financial depression of the country, your school succeeded 
well. 

Total enrollment for the year, 309; 167 girls and 142 boys, a 
decrease of 57 from the previous year. Number in graduating 
class, 45; 30 were girls and 15 were boys. Largest graduating 
class in history of school. Total graduates to date, 226. 

Expenses of operating the school for the year were as follows: 
Teachers' salaries, $13,405.74; equipment and repairs, $921.87; 
night watchman, $600.50; fuel, $3,036.45; lights, $624.25; incidental 
expenses, $8,075.36; and boarding department, $19,470.41, making 
a grand total of $46,164.55 for all expenses. 

The income booked for the year was as follows: from tuition, 
$10,172.50; from board, $19,470.41; from room rent, $1,197.75; from 
heating, $3,036.45; from lights, $624.25; from incidentals, $5,651.68; 
from special departments, $5,022,79; from State Educational Board, 
$2,000.00 for current expenses; $500.00 for equipment, and $800.00 
on purchase price of property owned by private parties; and from 
interest on endowment, $64.60; making a grand total of $48,540.43. 
Of this sum, a total of $45,506.36 has been collected, leaving a 
balance of $3,034.07 yet due, the greater part of which is thought 
to be collectable. From the foregoing it will be seen that, if all is 
collected that has been booked, the school will have a surplus of 
$1,575.88. The $800 donated by the State Educational Board for 
the purciiase of privately owned property is yet in hands of the 
Treasurer. The two Associations are in arrears on ministerial 
tuition as follows: Kings Mountain Association, $111.79, and 
Sandy Run Association, $197.70. In addition to this a number of 
churches have . overlooked sending in the 10 cents per member to 
pay insurance premiums and other expenses not otherwise pro- 
vided for. It is to be hoped that every dollar of these arrearages 
will be collected, as the school is sorely in need of the money.

Through the earnest efforts of Professor Hamrick and his co- 
workers, we now have a complete and much-needed system ©f 
electric lights in all the buildings. 

Fail Term of school opened August 8th with much larger attend- 
ance than was expected, under existing circumstances. The fol- 
lowing changes in faculty were made on account of resignations: 
Prof. li. D. Powers succeeds Rev. W. G. Moore in the Bible Depart- 
ment. Mrs. Wallace succeeds Miss Banks in Household Arts, and 
l.iiss Taylor, a graduate of Meredith College, succeeds Miss Martin 
in History Department. 

Present class enrollments are as follows: Intermediate Depart- 
ment, 20; Freshman Class, 49; Sophomore, 43; Junior, 51, and 
Senior, 42; and Special, 9, making a total enrollment to date of 
214. Of these, 103 are girls and 111 boys. There are 157 boarding 
students. The following States are represented: North Carolina, 
South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Connecticut, and Oklahoma. 
Eighteen North Carolina and six South Carolina counties are rep- 
resented. Classified by. churches, there are 148 Baptist, 7 Meth- 
odist and 1 Presbyterian. We have 118 students from Cleveland 
and 20 from Rutherford County. There are 102 from the Kings 
Mountain, 39 from the Sandy Run, and 2 from the Gaston Associa- 
tion. In the Special Departments, we have as follows: Bible, 65; 
Music, 63; Art, 15, and Household Arts, 17. There are 10 Minis- 
terial Students and 119 in the B. Y. P. U. 

The brick work on the beautiful Memorial Building is completed 
and the work of covering is now in progress. As soon as the roof 
is on and the sash placed in windows, work will again stop, unless 
additional funds are provided at this term of the Association. The 
exceedingly high price of labor and material last year made the 
building much more expensive than was anticipated by the archi- 
tect. When completed, the building will cost approximately $60,- 
000. Total amount pledged to date, $43,500. Collected by the 
Treasurer on subscriptions to date, $27,420.36. Due on pledges, 
$16,079.64. Estimated additional sum needed to complete the build- 
ing, $15,693.73. In other words, we need $32,721.20 to repay bor- 
rowed money, to pay outstanding bills and to finish the building. 

The terms of the following members of the Board of Trustees 
expire with this session of the two Associations: Kings Mountain 
Association, B. T. Falls, J. H. Quinn. J. Y. Irvin, D. J. Keeter and 
C. B. Wilson. Tv70 other vacancies occur from resignations, viz.: 
Carme Elam, w^hose term expires in 1922, and E. C. Borders, whose 
term expires in 1923. Sandy Run Association, W. T. Tate, G. B. 
Pruett, J. J. Edwards, J. F. Alexander and D. M. Harrill. 

Although our young sister, the Gaston County Association, ap- 
pointed a special committee in 1919 to visit our school and report 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 

back to that Association in 1920, relative to accepting our invita- 
tion to become one of the joint owners of our school, and although 
said committee made a favorable report, the Association did not 
finally act upon the matter but appointed another committee to 
make further investigation and report back this year. It is to be 
hoped' that that Association will take favorable action on this mat- 
ter at its approaching session and that our beloved school will 
soon have three strong Associations at its back. If the South 
Fork Association has not definitely connected itself with one of 
our other Baptist schools, we recommend that the invitation be 
renewed to that Association to join with us also. 

The Boiling Springs Baptist Church, appreciating the need of 
adequate accommodation for our student body, has erected a new 
house of worship that would be a credit to any church or to any 
city. It is well arranged in every way for Sunday School work 
and all church organizations. The total cost of the building will 

amount to $ T he church contemplates calling a pastor at 

an early date for his full time. With our school buildings forming 
a semi-circle around this church building, the Christian character 
of our school will always be emphasized. 

' We point with pride to the effective work that is being done in 
our Bible Department under Prof. H. D. Powers, who specialized 
on Bible in college. For the accommodation of all grades of the 
school, a Junior Bible Class has been organized and we now have 
two classes daily in the Bible. The student body has organized 
three separate B. Y. P. U. Unions, a Y. M. C. A. and a Y. W. C. A., 
all of which are M^ell attended. As a rule, the moral and Christian 
influence of the ministerial students has a healthy influence over 
the student body. 

We take great pleasure in expressing to the pastors and minis- 
ters of the two Associations our hearty appreciation for their kind 
co-operation in all things pertaining to the best interest of our 
school. The success of the school is largely due to their influence 
and co-operation. Your board would be glad to have all pastors 
of the two Associations made advisory members of this board and 
to have them meet with the board at least once each year for con- 
sultation.

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

Human tongue will never be able to tell of the wonderful good 
the Baptist Orphanage at Thomasville has done for the orphan 
children in North Carolina, though the beginning of this work was 
by the Masons, and blessed be their memory. Then came the great- 
est orphan's home in the South. On November 11, 1885, the first 
child was received, and since that time two thousand and thirty- 
three children have been cared for. There are now at Thomasville 
and the Kenedy Home five hundred and thirty-one children. There 
are about fifty applications per month, most of whom must be 
turned away for lack of room. The annual cost per child is about 
two hundred and fourteen dollars. Children are received between 
the ages of two and twelve, and are dismissed according to prep- 
aration rather than age. 

Much attention is given to the school work, which is on the 
graded system and embraces ten grades. The children go to school 
half the day and work the other half. 

The sewing room keeps about twenty girls in the morning and a 
like number in the afternoon, and in this way they are taught to 
make their own clothes. 



MINUTES OF THE SAl^DY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 13 



Charity and Children, as its organ, is the right arm of the insti- 
tiution. Twelve boys are employed in the job department for half 
the time. Only about one-third of our Baptist Sunday Schools' 
take this pap^r in clubs. There ought to be a club in every Sun- 
<iay School in the State, and more of our Baptist people should 
place it in their homes, not only because it would help the Orphan- 
age, but because they can place no better literature in the hands 
.of their children and loved ones. 

There are 2,000 Sunday Schools in the State. About forty per 
cent of the current fund comes from once a month collections from 
about one-third of these schools. If the minority can contribute 
this amount, \/hat would be the result if we could enlist every 
Sunday School in North Carolina in this noble work? 

Our Association, with forty-six Churches, contributed $1,140.31 
last year, which is an average of $24.80 per Church. But fifteen 
of our Churches contributed nothing. 

We. your Committee, recommend that all the Churches make 
once a month oiiferings from their Sunday School; that they plan 
for the "One Day for the Orphanage" Thanksgiving offering on 
Thanksgiving Day, or on a Sunday nearest that day; and that 
•every Sunday School in the Association secure clubs for Charity 
and Children.

Report on State Missions was read by H. D. Harrill. 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

Very little in the way of enlargement in the State Mission work 
as a result of the campaign has been possible in North Carolina, 
Secretary C. E. Maddry reports. State Missions were cut so low 
in the original apportionment of the campaign funds in the interest 
of education and other objects, Dr. Maddry says, that we have no 
more funds now, or very little more than we had before the cam- 
paign was put on. Our convention reserves the right to revise the 
apportionment at any time; will be done at the next Convention 
in the interest of State Missions. 

The general situation in North Carolina is very hopeful, however. 
Under the impetus of the campaign the Churches are responding 
more liberally than ever before to all the Kingdom causes and the 
responses from the State on subscriptions to the campaign are 
among the most liberal to be found anywhere in the territory of 
the Convention. 



14 MINUTES OF THE SANDY KUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

A total of $261,761.41 has been appropriated for State Missions 
during the past two years. This has enabled the board to employ 
eight general State workers or enlisted men, four Sunday School 
workers, two B. Y. P. U. workers, two W. M. U. workers and two 
educational and three office workers for the Board of Missions, as 
well as to supplement the salaries of 196 missionary pastors. These 
workers reported a total of 1,953 baptisms and 2,285 additions to 
the Churches the past year. Thirty Churches have been aided in 
building houses of worship. Therefore, let us go forward praying 
God to help us in the great work.

Report on Home Missions was read by G. B. Pruette. 

HOME MISSION REPORT 

The year through which we have just passed has been notable in 
many respects. On account of financial and political conditions we 
have had many new problems. However, we are grateful to God 
for the greatest year in all our history. 

At a meeting of the Home Mission Board in June, 1920, our work 
was enlarged more than a hundred per cent beyond anything we 
had ever undertaken before. Appropriations were made for the 
year amounting to more than two million and nine hundred thou- 
sand dollars. Workers in all parts of our activities were aglow 
with enthusiasm. The Lord lent His favor and things were mov- 
ing at high tide. Then came the sudden deflation in prices. Our 
great staple cotton dropped from forty to ten cents. Business was 
paralyzed and it affected all our mission interests. It tested our 
people as by fire. 

In a short while our forces rallied and the result has been glo- 
rious. Everywhere the people are accepting the slogan to pay two- 
fifths of their pledges to the seventy-five million campaign. 

Among the foreigners and Indians we have had a greater num- 
ber of conversions and baptisms than ever before. Our evangelists 
have had a great year. City-wide campaigns have resulted in the 
salvation of thousands of souls. The attendance at Sunday School, 
Church and the various organizations of the Church has made a 
wonderful increase. Student organizations in the schools have 
gone far toward solving the problem of religious training for our 
boys and girls. 

However, there are yet many tremendous tasks to be performed. 
Our cities are growing larger and the increased number of for- 
n'^^-ners challenge us to Christianize them or let them heathenize 
us.

Report on Foreign Missions was read by W. M. Gold. 

The uplifting effects of the 75 Million Campaign have been 
keenly felt in our work In foreign lands. Our great advance here 
at home has inspired the native Churches to efforts like unto our 
■own. Every field is pressing its great campaign with fine success. 

The highest altitude in number of baptisms was reached in the 
baptism of 6,998 converts. 

We now have 611 Churches, 187 of which are self-supporting. 
The total membership is SD^''!^^. Their contributions last year 
amounted to about five dollars per member. Three hundred and 
forty-seven, or a few more than half, own their own houses of 
"worship. 

Forty-one thousand seven hundred and twenty-seven scholars 
v;ere instructed in our 907 Sundays Schools. Four hundred and 
five foreign missionaries are now under appointment, 72 having 
been sent out during the year. 

The Board ovv^ns 94 residences to be used by these missionaries. 
This is about one-half the number needed for the presenct force. 
Nine hundred and seventy-eight native workers are employed. 
Our 632 schools are crowded with 22,866 students. Of these, 284 
are theological students. 

The Foreign Mission Board has unmet needs. Notwithstanding 
72 new missionaries appointed this year, there is great need of 
100 more to take care of important posts of the frontiers. Nearly 
half the Churches need houses of worship and residences are needed 
for nearly half the missionaries under appointment. Equipment 
Is needed for schools and hospitals. Money is needed with which 
at once to equip three theological seminaries in countries where 
our preachers are denied training. These are but examples of the 
needs of the board. 

These needs can be met by paying promptly and faithfully cam- 
paign pledges. The work has been projected, missionaries have 
been sent out, obligations have been assumed, relying upon the 
promises of Baptist subscribers to the 75 Million Campaign. Con-

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL RELIEF 

Your Committee on Ministerial Relief begs to submit the follow- 
ing: 

We believe that the minister, who has come to his day of retire- 
ment, or who, for any reason, has become disabled, is in every way 
worthy of our sympathy, prayer, and financial support. The same 
thing is true of their widows and orphan children. These men and

"women were faithful to God and his canse, in the midst of the 
greatest sacrifices in layin?; the foundation for the work of Christ 
in this State, and surely t'^ey s'^^ould receive our hearty support in 
their declining years. Other Christian organizations are far ahead 
of us in this department of work and in the discharge of this Chris- 
tian obligation. Even railroads and some other business and wordly 
institutions care foT their old and faithful employees. We should 
not only strive to emulate other Christian and worldly institutions, 
but we should furnish these old heroes of our faith the support 
they so richly deserve. 

The Convention Board, located in Dallas, known as the Relief 
and Annuity Board, has taken over the work of the States. The 
aim of this board is to g-ive aid and comfort to the disabled minis- 
ters, as well as to those who have grown old in the service, and 
have come to their day of need and retirement, and to their widows 
and orphan children such aid as their exigencies demand, and as 
their financial condition will allow. 

The board has now a beneficiary list of between seven and eight 
hundred. Others are being added from month to month. The 
stipends of the beneficiaries who have been transferred to us from 
the States have, in the most part, been increased from 40 per cent 
to GO per cent, and in some instances as much as 100 per cent. 
AVhile we have made great strides since the organization of the 
new Convention Board in giving and and comfort to the disabled 
and retired ministers, we are just beginning to do what we should 
do. Our aim should be to persuade our people to say to the min- 
isters in active service today: "Give yourself whole heartedly to 
work, spend yourself freely; be not afraid; we do not pay you 
just the salaries that we should, but this we do, at least, solemnly 
promise, we will stand back of you; if you fall in the work, we 
will care for you ; if you die we will not permit your family to 
suffer; if you grow old in it, we will comfort your declining years." 
Just that and nothing short of it should be the attitude of our 
great denomination to its ministry, and everyone of our young 
preachers should feel that the denomination has so spoken to him, 
and that he can accept its word at par. If we could say that so 
as to carry conviction to the men of the hard fields, and the small 
salary, we should put new life in them, we should greatly increase 
their efficiency, and the denomination would be the real bene- 
ficiary.

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL SUPPORT 

The Cfmimittee on Ministerial Support beg leav« to repoii; as. 
follows: 

That while it is general Cy conceded that our pastors, are the 
poorest paid class (d people according to their efficiency for good 
that we have among us, yet we are glad to be able to report that 
for th« last few years there has been a steady increase in the sup- 
port of ministerial work. We note with pleasure that within the 
iast ten years the Churches in the Association have more than 
doubled their contributions to the support of their pastors. 

As our people become more enlightened they are realizing more 
and more their duty in this respect. We would recommend that 
parents would divide their contributions to the support of their 
pastors among the several members of their families, that each 
member may give something in their own name to the support of 
the pastor. The wise man said "Train up a child in the way he 
should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." 
Respectfully submitted,

According to the letters sent to this Association we find there 
are five Churches w^hx) report no contributions to missions in any 
form, either on the 75 Million Fund, State, Home or oreign, or to 
Christian Education; and there are seven Churches that gave noth- 
ing to the Orphanage this year, against 15 last year. 

The lowest per capita of any Church making contributions to 
Missions (and that includes the 75 Million Fund, State, Home and 
Foreign, to the Orphanage and Christian Education) is three and 
one-third cents per member; the highest shown by any Church to 
these objects is $10.57; and the averag-e per capita for the entire 
Association is only $1.91. 

We do not believe there is a Church in this Association that 
cannot average one dollar per member during a whole year. That 
is only two cents per week, and who is there that cannot in some 
way manage to raise two cents each week for Missions in all its 
forms ?

to send $1.00 for each member in the Church to take care of the 
$6,000.00 yet due on the Memorial Building and $197.00 due on 
Ministerial Education. 

Also the Churches send 20 cents per member each year to keep 
up insurance and the Ministerial Education. 

Each pastor is requested to bring this matter before their

A TRIBUTE TO REV. J. R. MATHENY 

On July 9, 1921, it pleased God in His infinite wisdom to call 
Reverend J. R. Matheny from this earthly vineyard to be with 
Him and enjoy the unmeasured things of hope which God has 
prepared for those who love Him. 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 21 

Brother Matheny joined the Church at Mt. Pleasant, September 
"15, 1873; was licensed to preach September 10, 1907, by his home 
Church and ordained to the full work of the ministry August 30, 
1912, His whole life was one of good will, kindliness of spirit and 
:fine character. He knew the secret of beautiful living and the 
deep principles of experimental religion. He died in the triumph 
of faith — having preached a very earnest sermon at 11 o'clock, 
and being stricken in the pulpit, died at 8 o'clock the same even- 
ing. His good life will live on and his sterling qualities of Chris- 
tian character will leave an indelible impress on those who knev/ 
him. Our hearts are heavy at his going, but we must humbly 
commit our lives to His Guiding Hand and wait the glad reunion 
around the throne. 

A. I. JOLLEY, 
C. H. SCRUGGS, 
L. E. RAMSEY. 
We, your Committee on Obituaries, report the following: 
By report from our Churches by letter to this Association we 
find that the death angel has passed over our Associational terri- 
tory wielding his sycle, gathering to God and to Glory 39 (thirty- 
nine) of our good brethren and sisters. Some were taken in 
younger age, others in older age. 

One of our ministers was called to his reward — Bro. Joe Ma- 
thenyt — aken almost from the pulpit. 

Death is coming to all. Watch therefore for ye know not the 
day nor the hour when your Lord doth come. Be ye also ready, 
for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh.

REPORT ON BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLE'S UNION 

We have been unable so far to ascertain just how many Baptist 
Young People's Unions have been organized in the Association 
during the Associational year, but there have been a few we know 
of, and we feel that, though slowly, our Churches are realizing 
more and more the importance of this phase of the Kingdom 
work. 

The leaders of today will soon be dropping out one by one, and 
the Church needs trained leaders to take the place of those who 



22 MINUTES OF THE SANDT RON BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

have served their day. The B. Y. P. U. offers, we think, the best 
opportunities for training our young people, and aiding them in 
many ways to become efficient workers and leaders, in our- 
Churches. 

The B. Y. P. U. is gaining ground each year, and we hope the 
day is not far distant when every Church in our Association will 
have one or more Baptist Young People's Unions, 

If the Churches in our Association were divided into groups of 
a few Churches to each group, and some one made responsible for 
each of these groups, we believe we could' more quickly organize 
the young people of our Churches. The B. Y. P. U. is the Train- 
ing Camp of the Church, and. in no other organization that exists; 
in our Churches can the young men and young women get the 
practical training and experience that fits them for higher service 
than in the Baptist Young People's Union.

REPORT OF THE W. M. U. 

The annual meeting of Woman's Missionary Union, auxiliary to 
the Sandy Run Association, met with the Church at Henrietta, 
August 26th and 27th. Sermon by Rev. W. K. Collins. 

The Pageant by Henrietta Y. W. A, was splendidly rendered 
and taught a great lesson. The people of the community enter- 
tained the visitors in a most hospitable manner, and nothing that 
could add to their comfort was left undone. 

There were eighteen Churches and fifty societies represented; 
the attendance was fine. All the differnt phases of our mission 
work were discussed; not one pessimistic note was sounded. All 
the discussions were marked by a deep sense of spirituality. Mrs. 
Reddish made a splendid address which will be a great help to us 
during this year. 

This was such a good meeting that it is hard to tell of all the 
good things in our limited space, but we are sure that every one 
who attended felt that they had been lifted to higher ground. 

The next meeting will be held with the Church at Concord the 
latter part of August. 

The following officers were elected for next year: 

Mrs. J. R. Moore, Superintendent; Miss Ammie Wilson, Junior 
Superintendent; Mrs. J. B. Jones, Mission Study Superintendent; 
Mrs. S. N. Watson, Secretary and Treasurer. 



24 MINUTES OF THE SANDY R aX BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

We, the women of the Missionary Societies, desirous of stim- 
ulating a missionary spirit and the grace of giving among the 
women and children of the Churches, ask the co-operation of all 
the pastors in elisting and organizing societies in the twenty-three 
unenlisted Churches. 

A Missionary Society is for prayer, praise, Bible study and mis- 
sion study — a worthy program. Help us to reach our aim — "A 
Missionary Society in every Cliurch in the Sandy Run Associa- 
tion." 

Gifts for the year for all objects of the Convention: $4,511.44. 

Last year we gave $5,983.87. Let every Society do its very best 
during this year, and we believe with the help of the Master we 
shall be able to go over the five thousand dollar mark again. Let's 
all rally around the work of the Lord. 

Messengers to the Sandy Run Association: Mrs. D. B. Lynch^ 
Mrs. W. S. Moore, Miss Ella Pniitt. 

Watchword for this year: "I can do all things through Christ 
which strengtheneth me." Phillippians 4-13. 

Hymn: ''The Son of God goes forth to War." 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. J. R. MOORE, Supt. 
MRS. S. N. WATSON, Secy. 

Be it resolved by the Sandy Run Association, in ses- 
sion, that we hereby express to the Cherokee Creek 
Church and the people in the community our heartfelt 
thanks for their kindness and hospitality; also for the 
splendid music furnished by the choir. 

Cash collection for Minutes, $17.35.

On motion, appointed B. E. Roach B. Y. P. U. Director 
with the privilege of dividing the Association into groups 
as he may think best. 

On motion, adjourn to meet with the Bethel Baptist 
Church, Ellenboro, N. C, on Wednesday before the sec- 
ond Sunday in October, 1922.

MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 



ORPHANAGE REPORT 

With each passing year we feel more keenly our obligation 
to the children who cry to us for help and friendship. The 
Thomasville Orphanage has in its care the largest group of 
children of any other organized body in the State, counting 
the 125 children aided in their own homes. I'hey now have 
667 boys and girls. The health of the orphanage is good. The 
dairy herd at Thomasville and the Kennedy Home are being; 
improved. Several cows give 10 gallons per day c^nd every 
child has over a quart of milk per day, which is a great help 
to the orphanage. Mothers Aid the Orphanage is helping 
more than 100 children with their mothers at about one-third 
the cost of keeping them in the orphanage. The Board of 
Trustees seem to think it would be wise to build two or more 
dormitories so they could take more children; 611 applications 
turned away last year for lack of room. We notice in the 
church letters to the Association last year several did not 
give anything to the orphanage. We hope every ohurch will 
see the importance and do sometliing to this worthy object. 

Your committee recommends: 

(1) A monthly collection from every Sunday School in 
the Association. 

(2) Give the value of one day's work at Thanksgiving. 

Respectfully submitted.

adopted. 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE 

Temperance workers are gaining against ' che whiskey 
traffic and becoming more popular, but there are other things 
such as extracts and other hurtful drugs sold from the stores 
that seem to be doing as much or more harm than whiskey, 
and reports are that these things are often sold on the Sabbath 
day to our young people. Satan comes in disguise through these 
things to steal the wealth, the health, the reason, the usefi.il- 
ness and souls of the children of men. 

We believe if Baptist brethren would neither drink nor 
assist others to get such alcoholic drugs that Vv^e would be 



8 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 



a much stronger power in the Master's work and King 
Alcohol would go from us. Make the tree good and the 
fruit will be good. 

Respectfully submitted.

Committee. 

Dr. Livingston Johnson read the report on i>iblical Record- 
er. Pending the adoption remarks by Dr. Johnson. Report 
adopted. 

BIBLICAL RECORDER 

For eighty-nine years the Biblical Recorder iias been the 
organ of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. Dur- 
ing all this time it has given its influence to every denomina- 
tional movement. Through its columns the representations 
of the several departments of our work give valuable informa- 
tion to our people. 

On the great doctrines of grace the Recorder has always 
sounded a true note. It endeavors to live up to its name, and 
holds to the doctrines of the Bible as interpreted by Baptists. 

Aside from the denominational matter contained in the 
paper, wholesome reading suited to the family 13 published 
week by week. News of general interest is given in order that 
the readers may keep informed as to events that are occurring 
in the world, concerning which our people should be informed. 

The Recorder sustains a unique relation to the denomina- 
tion, lit is owned by a corporation composed of a hundred 
Baptists, men and women scattered throughout the state. 
Like most papers the Recorder is not paying expenses, and 
is, therefore, given to the readers below the cost of produc- 
tion. This can be done because the Recorder Company owns 
an office building, and a printing plant. The rent on the 
building and the job department of the printing plant make 
up the loss on subscriptions. 

For the sake of the Kingdom of God, the local church 
and the family, the circulation of the Recorder -liiould be 
greatly increased.

Report adopted. 

REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

The Sunday School is one of the most important parts of 
the church work. It is the one department of the work of 
the church which is open to all classes and fvges of the 
church and community. Some one has said that 75 per cent 
of all the members received into the different churches come 
throug-h the Sunday Schools. In view of these facts it is 
surprising to see how little interest some church rnembers 
take in the Sunday School. From the report in the minutes 
of last year we see that the enrollment of the Sunday Schools 
was a little more than 80 per cent of the total membership 
of the churches in the Association, taking it as a fair estimate 
that at least 20 per cent of the enrollment of the Sunday 
Schools is composed of small children and others who are 
not church members, we find that only about 60 per cent of 
our church members are in any way engaged in Sunday 
School work. By the report in the minutes of last year only 
eleven churches report a larger number in Sunday Schools than 
members in the church, when if we were really interested in 
our Sunday School work as we should be, every church ought 
to report a larger Sunday School enrollment than the church 
membership. What are the causes of this lack of interest in 
Sunday School work in the churches? First, the indifference 
of church members to this branch of the work; aid, Second, 
inefficiency of the Sunday School workers to get the Sunday 
School lessons properly presented to the people. 

The remedy: We, your committee, recom.mend to the 
aifferent churches that they immediately try to enlist every 
member of the church in the Sunday School and that the As- 
jjociation make an effort to arouse interest in teacher train- 
ing and better equipment for Sunday School workers and we 
suggest that one or two of the fifth Sunday meetings of the 
Association be devoted exclusively to Sunday School work

The report on Education was read by C. C. Matheny. On 
motion to adopt, remarks by C. C. Matheny, Rev. Arch Mc-

South Mountain Institute. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Baptists are experiencing- a new appreciation of Christian 
Education as a part of their prog-ram for the bringing in of 
the Kingdom. Our Lord's last command to His disciples was 
to teach the converted one to do all that He had commanded. 
Christian Education makes for the efficency of the individual 
as well as that of Church and State. 

Realizing the value of Christian Education we would like 
to call your attention to some of our accomplishments: 

North Carolina Baptists own and operate three colleges — 
Wake Forest for men, Meredith and Chowan for women. These 
three institutions enrolled last year 1,002 students. We own 
in plant, equipment and endowment $1,888,603.21. We also 
own and maintain five academies — Boiling- Spring's, Buies 
Creek, Dell, Liberty-Piedmont and Wingate. These enrolled 
last year 1,523 students and own property worth $316,000.00. 
The Home Mission Board controls and supports in North Car- 
olina nine Mountain Schools, which enrolled last year 1,900 
students, and own property valued at $554,000.00. 

In addition to the above, we have a Baptist College at 
Oxford; three academies, Pineland for girls, Mountain Park 
for boys and g-irls. South Mountain Institute for boys and 
g-irls, all privately owned. 

North Carolina joins with other Southern States in sup- 
porting; the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary at Louis- 
ville, Ky., which enrolled last session 408 ministerial students 
and owns property worth $2,150,000.00, with a Woman's Train- 
ing School attached which enrolled 166 students last year; 
the Southwestern Theological Seminary at Forth Worth, Texas, 
with an enrollment of 691 men and women together and prop- 
erty valued at $1,454,700.00; also the Bible Institute at New 
Orleans, La., enrolling- 329 students, with property valued at 
$300,000.0^ 

We nad 85 ministerial students at Wake Forest last session 
and about 35 at Louisville, 7 at Fort Worth, also 4 young 
ladies at Meredith preparing for the Foreign Field. Our High 
Schools reported over 100 ministerial students and student 
volunteers for Foreign Work. 

Our State law now requires every child of school age to 
go to school, and that means that the next generation of our 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 11 

church membership will be educated, and we must need edu- 
cate our future pastors and church officials if these are to 
keep ah^ad of their people and lead them properly. 

While our schools sometimes make mistakes in their 
policies, they are still Qjjjrs and we can either correct the 
mistakes or remove the managers of the schools. But it 
should be remembered that when our State institutions teach 
and practice the same things to which we object in Baptist 
institutions we have no power to correct or improve them. So 
if we fail to maintain our own institutions we must send our 
sons and daughters to State institutions over which we have 
no control. 

Shall we be satisfied with our past accomplishments? May 
we not be content until every Baptist boy and girl shall 
receive their High School and College education in a Baptist 
Institution.

ANNUAL REPORT TRUSTEES BOILING SPRINGS HIGH 

SCHOOL. 

To the King's Mountain, Sandy Run and Gaston County 
Baptist Associations: Your school closed its fifteenth year 
of work on the 19th day of April, 1922. Viewed from all 
standpoints, it was a very successful year — m.ore successful 
than the Board expected in view of the unsettled financial 
conditions of the country. The Lord continues tc richly bless 
our School for which your Board is most thankful. It con- 
tinues to grow in efficiency, in popularity and in area of 
patronage. 

The total enrollment for last year was 273; The graduat- 
ing class numbered 34, there being 21 girls and 13 boys in 
the class. Total number of graduates from the beginning of 
the School to date is 260. It is worthy of note that both 
parents and students are appreciating more and more the 
importance of taking the full course in our School, whether 
the students mean to go to the higher institutions or into 
active life. 

The income of the School from August 1st, 1921, to 
August 1st, 1922, was as follows: From Board, $13,4S8.58, from 
Literary Tuition, $8,707.17; from Tuition in Special Depart- 
ments, $3,037.27; from incidental fees, $2,403.82; from Heating

Department, $883.94; from Lights, $438.78: from Room Rent. 
$1,122.96; from State Educational Board, $1,770.00; from Old 
Accounts, $2,749.95; from Endowment Fund, $72.00: fiom other 
sources, $1,898,09; and Bills Receiveable, $777.50, making a 
grand total of $37,400.06. 

The total running expenses of the School for the bame time 
were as follows: Expenses of Boarding Club, $13,865.94; 
Teachers' Salaries, $10,920.63; Cost of Fuel $2,795.53; Cost of 
Lights, $438.55; on Equipment and Repairs, $1,234.40; Old Ac- 
counts, $3,790.21; Incidental Expenses, $2,969.17; other objects, 
$1,033.62^ and Bills yet payable,, $1,516.82, making a -rrand total 
of $38,564.87. Tangible Assets from last year's operation of 
school, $4,665.16. After deducting all bills payable we will 
have a surplus of $3,148.34, if all outstanding debts are collect- 
ed. 

The resignation of several of our old teachers at close 
of last term created vacancies which were filled by the follow- 
ing new teachers: Prof. R. M. Lee, A. B., of Vv^ake Forest; 
Miss Sara L. Foster, A. B., of Winthrop; Miss Martha Lide, 
A. B., of Coker; Miss Mary H. TiHery, graduate in Art, Mere- 
dith and Miss Mary Morris, graduate in Home Economics, 
Carson and Newman. The faculty at present is composed of 
three men and ten women. We doubt if there is a high school 
in North Carolina with a better equipped faculty. 

The present term opened August 7th and the following 
extract from a recent report of the Principal to this Board 
explains the present status of the School: 

"Your School is in a flourishing condition. The enroll- 
ment to-date is as follows: 

"Intermediate Department, 9; Freshman Class, 41; Sopho- 
more Class, 45; Junior Class, 65; Senior Class 64; Specials, 11, 
making a total of 235. Of these 101 are girls aud 135 boys. 
There are 158 boarding students. 

"The following states are represented: North Carolina, 
South Carolina, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Texas. 11 North Car- 
olina and 7 South Carolina counties are represented. Classi- 
fied by cKurches, there are 220 Baptists, 3 Methodists, 1 As- 
sociate Reform and 9 non-church members. 

"We have 128 from Cleveland County, 33 from Rutherford 
County and 10 from Gaston County, There are S2 from 
King's Mountain Association, 59 from the Sandy Run and 10 
from the Gaston County Association. 

"In the Special Departments we have as follov/s: Bible, 
135; Music, 80; Art, 2; Household Art 23. There are 22 minis- 
terial students and 89l in B. Y. P. U. 

"I am pleased to state that the nevr teachers are thus 
far proving highly satisfactory." 

Since our last annual report, the young but Hve and 
aggressive Gaston County Association accepted the invitation 
of the King's Mountain and Sandy Run Associations ro join with 
them in the ownership and control of our School. This means 
much for our school and for the cause^ of Christian education. 
It was understood that the new Association would assume no 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 13 



financial responsibilities of the School, old or new, until the 
expiration of the five years covered by the 75 Million Cam- 
paign, as the churches of that Association had gone iheir limit 
for Christian education in that campaigri. The new Associa- 
tion was given ten members on this Board, makinjc the Board 
now number thirty-five. Ten men of exceptional ability and 
deeply interested in Christian education were appointed as 
trustees,, said trustees to serve until the approaching- meeting of 
the Gaston County Association when their successors will be regu- 
larly named by that body in such manner and for such length of 
term as it may elect. Our Charter has been so amended as to 
give the new Association equal rights and states with the 
other two. Located in the most densely populated Baptist 
territory in this country, if not in the worM. and with three 
strong- Associations with an aggregate membcrshii) of over 
23,000, the future success of our School is assured. The earn- 
est desire of this Board is that every member of these As- 
sociations become thoroughly enlisted in behalf of our great 
institution. 

The terms of the following members of the Board of 
Trustees expire by limitation with this session of the three 
Associations: King's Mountain — J. F. Moore, E. B. Hamrick, 

C. D. Forney, J. L. Putnam, and T. A. Stamey; Sandy Run — 

D. J. Hunt, A. I. Jolly, T.. M. Holland, M. M. Green and 
A. D. Lancaster; Gaston County— Rev. W. C. Barrett, Rev. T. 
H. King, Dr. J. L. Vipperman, Rev. C. J. Black, Rev. 
D. F. Putnam, A. U. Stroup, R. F. Craig, W. J. Francis, 
J. E. Ford and N. B. Kendrick. 

It is painful to us to be forced to again report the Me- 
morial Building uncompleted for need of funds. The build- 
ing is under cover and nearly closed in but very little has 
been done on the interior, except the shop woik which has 
been on hands for more than a year. By reason of a recent 
contribution of $1,000 by Bro. J. F. Alexander, of Forest City, 
N. C, work on the exterior of the building has been resumed 
and will be pressed to early completion. To date we have expended 
more than $46,000 on the building, and yet it has been of no 
service to the School, except two rooms in one wing which 
we are now using in an uncompleted state. The interest alone 
on this investment would be more than $2,700 per year and 
the School is suffering for need of the building. What shall 
we do? Our hands are tied. When the movement to launch 
this building started you instructed the Board xo borrow 
no money in excess of the amount pledged. We nave obeyed 
your instructions and were forced to discontinue work. Despite 
all we can do, the building will damage in present condition. 
For this reason and for further reason of the great need of 
the School, your Board most earnestly appeals to the King's 
Mountain and Sandy Run Associations to take steps at tnis 
session of the two bodies to raise the additional f rinds neces- 
fsary for completion, or to give the Board instructions to 
borrow sufficient funds to complete tthe whole, or such part 
of the building as may be most urgently needed. As this 



14 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 



building- is a memorial to the soldiers and sai^.ors in the recent 
war from the bounds of the above two Associations and to 
their mothers, including the former students of the School, 
tile Gaston County Association is not expected to take any 
part in the completion of said building. We have received 
recent estimates on the cost of completing the building as 
fol'ows: Labor and material for completing basement, $3,500; 
Additional material and labor for all other parts of the 
building, $5,628.10; for plumbing, $1,250; for wiring for lights, 
$450; steam heating equipment, $2,700; and opera chairs for 
auditorium, $2,200, making a grand total to complete in full 
of $15,728.10. We have on hands approximately $1,000, leaving- 
a balance of $14,728.10 to be raised. The need for completing 
the basement is not urgent at present. So the oost can be 
decreased to that extent, leaving- approximately $12,000 urgently 
needed to complete remainder of building. We now owe 
$9,000 with interest for borrowed money but we have amp^e 
pledges and subscriptions to take care of this if they are all 
paid. We cannot impress upon the churches and the individu- 
als too strongly the need of paying all these pledges and 
subscriptions this fall to stop interest on this loan. 

Since our second call in 1920 for funds to complete this 
building, as repeated again in 1921, a few churches and in- 
dividuals have promptly responded to the call, but a large 
majority have not yet reported. 

There has been a little confusion among the churches 
in the past raising funds to take care of the tuition of the 
ministerial students in the School. Your Board hopes to be 
able in its next annual report to recommend some better 
method for meeting this need, but for the present year some 
provision must be made for the 22 ministerial students that 
we now have. For past years, the King's Mountain Association 
owes a balance of $173.86 on this account and the bandy Run 
Association $170.60. 

It has been suggested by loyal friends of our School that 
an Educational Secretary (or call him by any name you like) 
be employed for his entire time to work within the boundaries 
of these three Associations to stir up interest in all lines of 
denominational activity, but to specialize in behalf of our 
School to increase its patronage, its equipment, and its en- 
dowment. This suggestion appeals strongly to your Board 
but we submit it without recommendation. 

We point with special pride to the moral and Christian 
atmosphere which now surrounds your School. It was never 
better. Two great evangelistic meetings of two weeks each 
have been conducted at the School church during this calen- 
dar year which have resulted in great spiritual blessings to 
the School and to the community. As evidence of this fact, 
we have only 9 students who are non-church members. The 
moral and Christain influence of the 22 ministerial students 
is very helpful to the School. Various organizations .'ere foster- 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 15 

ed to develop the student body on lines of Christian activity. 

Again we express to the pastors and ministers of these 
three Associations our highest appreciation for their hearty 
and loyal co-operation in all things that tend to the better- 
ment of our School and the increase of its patronage. They 
hold the destiny of the School in their hands. Let them not 
forget that they have been made advisory members of this 
Board.

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

As will be learned from the annual report of the Home 
Mission Board, made to the Southern Bai)tist Convention at 
Jacksonville last May, the Board presented a lecord of won- 
derful achievements. The previous year had been che g-reatest 
in all the history of the Board and though there was retrench- 
ment in the force of workers, the past year in results was 
even greater. 

The million dollar mark was reached in the Church- 
Building Loan Fund which is loaned to churches in. the erec- 
tion of church buildings. 

It was the greatest year in soul saving and in the en- 
listment, of our forces in the work of the Kingdom, in advance- 
ment toward self-support in so many of our fields, ail of 
which conspired to render the year memorable in our history. 

There were last year under the employment of the Board, 
independent and co-operative workers,, a total of 1,1(S8 mission- 
aries who supplied 3,131 churches and missions, delivered 
165,445 sermons and addresses, made 236,992 religious visits, 
baptized 36,164 converts, received 83,994 additions to the 
churches, organized 308 churches, built or improved 456 houses 
of worship,, organized, 786 Sunday Schools and did a vast work 
in personal visitation among the sick and distributed millions 
of pages of tracts and thousands of copies of the Scriptures. 

The Board's work is done under the following departments: 
Co-operative Missions, Enlistment, Evangelism, Mountain 
Schools, Foreigners, Indians and Negroes, Cuba, Panama, Sol- 
diers and Seamen, Publicity, Southern Baptist Sanatorium, 
Church Extension. 

In every department of the work there has been splendid 
progress, especially on the lines of Evangelism 'nd Enlist- 
ment, which two departments have recently been more closely 
co-ordinated and are working hand in hand for the salvation 
of the lost and the development of the saved. 

The Board for two years has been heavily in debt because 
of the enlargement of the work at the beginning of the 75 
Million Campaign and a great falling off in receipts during the 
past year. This has made it necessary for retrenchment wherever 
possible and has at the same time made it impossible for the 
Board to respond to numerous and' pressing calls for help. 

Financial conditions are improving and the Beard is en- 
couraged to believe that its receipts will be in -.dvance of 
those for last year and thus make it possible to lessen the 
Board's debt and turn our forces towards the larger opportu- 
nities that are found on every hand. 

Respectfully submitted.

W. K. Collins read the report on State Missions. 

STATE MISSIONS 

State Missions is the nuclues of most all our missionary 
work. The more thoroughly we evangelize our own state the 
better fitted we will be to engage in all of the activities of 
the Kingdom work beyond our own borders. The State Mission 
Board is vigorously working toward this goal. 

Following is a summary of what we are doing through 
our State Mission Board: In the department of missionary- 
pastoral assistance we have 210 missionary pastors receiving 
aid from our board. These men have 350 churches and mission 
stations. We are assisting in the payment of the salary of 
almost every man at a college or school center. In all this 
missionary work the Board is paying on salaries from $5.00 to 
$175.00 per month. 

In the department of Sunday schools, we have a secretary, 
two field secretaries, and an elementary worker. We are mak- 
ing great progress in Sunday school organization dnd teacher 
training. We have 2,225 Baptist Sunday Schools in North Car- 
olina. And we are glad to say that the Sunday School Depart- 
ment is self sustaining and has been for a long time. 

Our Board is aiding in a great way in tha work of the 
Baptist Young Peopfes' Union, in the training of a generation 
of young people who will transform the churches in ten years. 

Enlistment work: There are about 2,300 churche? m North 
Carolina; of these, 1,800 are country churches, many of which 
have preaching only once per month, and often the pastor has 
to go a long distance to reach his church. In this enlistment 
work we have a Superintendent with five men under him. 
These men are giving themselves wholly to the problems of 
enlisting and developing these churches, leading them to the 
formation of fields and an increase of pastor's salary. 

In the work of church building, our Board is trying to 
help provide an adec^uate church and Sunday school equipment 
at every School center, and in every county seat, as well as 
in all growing towns. The Board could easily spend with profit 
a quarter of a million dollars building at State Mission points 
this year and then hardly touch the need. 

Evangelism: Our Board has organized an evange-istic de- 
partment with a superintendent and three men under him. 
These are strong men and are in great demand. The Lord 
is blessing their labors, an;i has given our denomination 
through them a wonderful ingathering. This department is 
almost self sustaining. 

^ Our Book Department: We organized a book lepartment 
a little more than a year ago. The sales have increased steadily 
every month and we are able to furnish any and everything 



m MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 



needed by a Baptist Church in its work. 

Your committee appeals to all of the pastors and their 
co-workers to marshal the forces and respond to he call of 
our Board.

D. J. Hunt read the report on Foreign Missions. 
REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

Southern Baptists are not a provincial peor)]e. The lines 
of our Foreign Mission endeavor have been extended into six- 
teen countries of the world. In these sixteen countries ihe popula- 
tion is twenty-five times as large as that which resides in the 
bounds of the Southern PpptiFt Convention. In these whitened 
harvest fields we iind twenty-five persons to every one in our 
Southern States, having a population 25 times that of the 
Southern Baptist Convention. 

Our Foreign Mission Board has occupied vast territory in 
China. Our great missions are laid out in that land in what 
are known as the North, Interior, Pakhoi, Central and South 
China Missions. In the six provinces of China in which we 
labor there are more people than there are in the entire United 
States,, and yet there are twelve other Provinces in China in 
which we have no work. Out of the 462 missionaries supported 
by the Foreign Mission Board in all lands, 253 are m China. 
More than half of our Foreign Missionaries are in China, and 
yet how few they appear to be in the Chinese population, which 
is about four times as large as that of the United States. 

Our other Far-East field is Japan, with a population almost 
twice as large as that of our Southern States. The Board has in 
Japan twenty-eight missionaries. A like distribution of preach- 
ers in our Southern States, made according to copulation, 
would not provide even one preacher for every state. Our 
w^ork prospers in Japan. We could do wonders in that country 
now with the new spirit of friendliness that has come over 
it, if we would at once double our missionary force. 

The closest Foreign Mission field to us is Mexico, which 
has as many people in it as are in Maryland, Virginia, North 
Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee and Kentucky. It 
is a fruitful mission field. In spite of the unsettled conditions 
and our reduced Foreign Mission force we had 4G5 baptisms 
in Mexico last year. Indeed it appeals that the very unrest 
of the country affords pecurliarly favorable opportunity for 
missionary endeavor. There are urgent reasons for reinforcing 
at this time our mission work in Mexico. 

Our Foreign Mission work extends into four coantries in 
South America— Brazil Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile. With 
the exception of Uruguay these are vast lands. B/azil is as 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 19 

large as the United States. Argentina is about e^ual to our 
territory east of the Mississippi River; Chile is as large as 
Texas, with a population about equal to that of Texas. Our 
Brazil Mission stands next in size to^^ those in China.: We have 
98 missionaries in Brazil, and the work in that ccuntry has 
grown rapidly. It ranks second in number of church mem- 
bers. There are 20,614 members of our churches in Brazil as 
compared with the 26,577 members in China, our oldest fie'-d. 
This comparison does not discount the work in China — indeed 
the work in China is most gratifying — but it is good to note 
the encouraging progress that attends our efforts m Brazil. 
The work in the other South American countries is compari- 
tiVely new but has taken a firm hold and is growing at a rapid 
rate. The Argentine Baptists gave last year more per capita 
than the Baptists in any of our other fields,even more than the per 
capita gift of the Baptists in the bounds of the Southern Baptist 
Convention. Argentina Baptists gave last year 4523.80 per mem- 
ber, and Southern Baptists gave $10.52 per memner for ail 
objects. 

During the past year much has been done towards evange- 
lizing the new fields in Europe. Dr. Everett Gill the Super- 
intendent of our new work in Europe, appointed in June 1921, 
has been able to do much in Spain, Jugo-Slavia, Roumania, and 
Hungary. He has found many Baptist brethren and has help- 
ed to organize the work. There is much to be done but pro- 
gress is being made. The Rev. H. E. Porter, our first mission- 
ary to Russia, has been able in connection with the American 
Relief Administration to go to Moscow, where he his done 
valiant service in relief work, and has been able -^o do some 
evangelizing. The conditions in Russia do not vet permit 
freedom of religious endeavors. 

The work in Syria and Palestine given to our Board by 
the brethren of Illinois has passed through a fairly ,>-ood year. 
The two native missionaries have been faithful. The Board at 
its meeting in May 1922 appointed two young men, who with 
their wives will soon go to Palestine for the purpose of lay- 
ing the foundation of a wide w^ork in the Holy Land. 

Such is a very brief review of the work of Southern Bap- 
tists in foreign fields. A glance at some statistics may help. 
We now^ have 622 churches in our foreign fields with a mem- 
bership of 64,251. Of these churches, one-third, or 206 are 
self-supporting-, and 375, or more than half, own their houses 
of worship. They gave on an average of $7.24 per member last 
year. 

We have a total of 694 schools of all grades nith an en- 
rollment of 26,507 students. This enrollment is about equal 
to the enrollment in all the Baptist Colleges in the South. 
While our foreign mission schools are not all of the college 
grade, yet we have these students under our tutorship as long 
as the usual college here, at home has its. And we have our 
foreign students at a more tender and impressionable age than 
that of the college students in our Southland. The result is 
that a very large portion of our church members are convert- 



20 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 

ed in our schools. One of our outstanding- missionaries in 
China says the 50 per cent of our church members in China 
were reached in the schools. The school is a g-reat '-evangeliz- 
ing: agency. 

We lay also great emphasis on the Sunday Schooi. We had 
last year in our 971 Sunday Schools, 53,691 scholars. 

The crowning glory 6i all the work done last year was 
the 7,891 baptisms. This was almost one thousand more bap- 
tisms than we have ever recorded in any year in oar Foreign 
Mission history. God be praised for His blessings. 

The most discouraging feature of our foreign m.ission work 
during- last year came not from the fields abroad, but from 
the response to this cause here at home. Southern Baptists 
gave during the last year $1,755,678 as against $2,498,381 year 
before last. This is a drop in foreign mission gifts of $742,- 
703 in one year. This is most serious. Our work abroad has 
been expanded greatly. It will be dreadfully embarrassed if 
its support is cut down this year like it was last year. The 
churches should wake up to the seriousness of oui foreign 
mission situation. Even though conditions in America should 
be as bad this year as they were last. Southern Baptists must 
support and reinforce these heroic missionaries they have sent 
to represent them' in the front lines of service in foreign 
fields. Doors of opportunity stand wide open every where. 
The needs of a broken hearted, suffering,, sinfvJ world call 
to us with a persistence that must be heeded now. We must 
not halt in our mission. We must at whatever cost of sacrifice 
and consecration preach in this opportune day Christ's gospel 
unfalteringly to the whole world for which He died»

Report on Ministerial Relief was read by G. P. Horn. Reporc 
adopted. 

The 75 Million Campaign has brought a new day to the 
minister disabled for any reason, at any time, or retired be- 
cause of old age. 

The Relief and Annuity Board has been functioning for 
a little longer than three years. It has invested assets today of: 

Relief Department ^419,027.25 

Annuity Department 730,061.27 

Total $1,149,088.52 

The board has gathered and invested for the tvv^o depart- 
ments in the form of endowment and reserve, at the rate of 
$383,029.50 . per year. In addition thereto, it has paid to its 
old and retired preachers $300,173.31, or at the rate of $100,- 
057.77 as an average per year for the past three years. The 
board paid out during the past year to her relief beneficiaries 
the sum of $128,966.89, which is $10,000.00 in excess of what 
we paid them the year before. 

What we are doing is a matter of right and justice, and 
not a matter of charity. Charity may be justice, but it does 
not go far enough. It is nothing but justice to furnish means 



22 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 



of comfort to men who have labored as ministers through the 
weary days and have come to the shades of evening without 
personal ineans of support. Preachers have been urged to 
"lay up against the rainy day," but those who advocate such 
a policy are not wise to see that any such policy vill create 
prejudice against a pastor, which will militate against his use- 
fulness. Preachers must be liberal men. No matter how little 
they have, with that Httle they must be liberal givers. Com- 
mon justice suggests a material provision for men who are 
inevitably brought to need it, and whose work and labors have 
been of such a character as to make it quite impossible to 
provide for old age. It is not the needy, faithful preacher 
who is making a plea for common justice. "Men who have 
hazarded their lives for the Gospel" are not likely to hold out 
the hand at the last of their pilgrimage. Those who should 
cry out for justice toward God's men, are the rank and file 
of our great Baptist host whom these men have so faithfully 
served. 

What we are doing is altogether inadequate. The senti- 
ment is growing and the belief becoming fixed that the re- 
tiring allowance for our veterans should be sufficient for the 
simple comforts of life. This doctrine has been proclaimed 
so long by some of the denominations, that long years ago 
it became a fixed principle, and for half a century has been 
finding expression in a noble and adequate form of benevol- 
ence. The problem and practice of a work so demanded and 
so necessary is so recent with Southern Baptists, that they 
do not take the obligation as seriously as those who have been 
in the. work for a long time. They are, however, rapidly ap- 
proaching the fixed conviction that the minister is no less 
valuable to the community than the policeman, the fireman, 
the school teacher, railroad employee, all of whom receive old 
age pensions, not to mention a host of others. Our people 
are also accepting the truth, and the Relief and An^iuity 
Board is declaring it everywhere, that the widows and orphans 
of those who fall in the fight should not suffer tl%e added 
burden and terror of poverty, but unfortunately, we have been 
engaged in the work so short a time, that the provision we 
are now able to make it pitifully inadequate. The pr.;)blem 
is purely one of bread and butter; food, shelter and clothing, 
the actual necessities of life,, for those who by reason of the 
kind of service they have rendered, are unable to provide for 
themselves.

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL SUPPORT 

That while it is generally known that our pastors are the

good, that we have, we are glad to be able to report that for 



24 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 

the past few years there has been a great increase in the 
support of ministerial worls. 

We note that within the last few years the ^/turches in 
the Association have more than doubled their pastor's salary. 
As our people become more enlightened they r";alize, more 
their duty in this respect. 

We are taught in the Bible to "Train up a child in the 
way he should go and when he is old he will not lepart from 

it;*

Among this number was our well beloved brother, Rev. Burrel

Therefore we feel the loss of his departure. Yet his influence 
is felt everywhere he went.

Union. Twelve new Unions have been organized and perhaps 
there are others of which we have no record. Eight new 
Unions joined the Rutherford County Association cf Baptist 
Young' Peoples' Unions at the last meeting of that organiza-

tion which convened with the Unions of the Caroleen Baptist 
Church, Sunday, October 1st, 1922. 

A number of young- people in different sections have been 
asked to co-operate in organizing new Unions and some have 
been surcessful in organizing one or more unions. 

We recommend that the work of the B. Y. P. U. be 
stressed even more during the next year and a .greater effort 
be made to organize at least one union in churches Wxiere they 
do not now exist. We earnestly solicit the co-operation of 
the pastors in this work and ask that they try to interest the 
young people of their churches in this great work of train- 
ing our young people and preparing- them to serve our churches 
and the Kingdom at large.

ORPHANAGE 

Baptists of NoKh Carolina should be proud of the work being", 
done at Thomasville. Superintendent Kasler and his eplend d corps, 
of helpers are doing themselves great credit in the grade of worlL 
which they are doing. At Thomasville we have not only a home 
for the fatherless, but a home, school and church. We are develop 
ing the ch Idren physically, morally, mentally and spiritually. God 
be praised that we have something to offer the children who are 
looking to us for help. 

The influence of this institution is world-wide. We are sending 
out the truth of our Lord through the boys and girls that go out from 
our orphanage. In supporting this work the Baptists of North 
Carol. na are to some extent measuring up to the principle set forth 
by the Apostle James. "Pure religion and undefiled before God 
and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their 
affliction." 

We call attention to the fact that many children at present can- 
not find entrance into the orphanage because there is no room for 
Ihem. Our superintendent is forced so often to say, "wait." We 
have a great plant at Thomasville but if we meet the needs of the 
day we must make it larger Therefore we urge the churches if 
possible to increase their contributions. Think of the great loss 
of having one child go without a place. When the churches realize 
what one day means to in the life of a boy or a girl then we will 
open our purses and make adequate provision for every child for 
whom we are responsible. 

We most heartily commend the work of the superintendent and 
his faculty. They must have our prayers and money to succeed. 

We recommend that the orphanage be kept continually befoie 
our churches. 

Respectfully .submitted, 

W. T. TATE.

REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS 

Baptist Sunday School work in North Carolina has shown mar- 
velous growth and development during the past year in number of 
schools, in membership, in efficiency, in organization, in buildings 
and equipment, in teacher training. Under the leadership of Sec- 
retary Middleton and his co-workers these things have been 
stressed as a means to the end that the Word of God may be so 



MI KUTES OF TKE SA> DY KIN PAI TIST ASSOC! AT JON 7 

taught as to lead people to a personal knowledge of Jesus as Savior 
from s.n 

NUMBER — ^We stand first among the states in the South ia 
-number of Sunday Schools to the number of churches, having 2,174 
Bip.ist Sunday Schools in the State. Now Sunday Schools are 
l)c4ng organized every year but the aim .''S a Sunday School in 
EVERY Baptist church in the State. 

MEMBERSHIP — In memlDership we rank second, with 265,495 
enrolled in Sunday Schools. For every 100 church members there 
are nearly 82 people in the Baptist Sunday Schools in North Caro 
Lna. But 55 of these are not church members and we are facing 
the humiKating fact that our Sunday School enrollment is far be- 
hnd our church enrollment. There are at least 500,000 people who 
Leiong to our constituency and go to no Sunday School. 

An o her big task is to reach and train the 250,000 children who 
1 elcng to Baptist Sunday Schools. 

ORGANIZATION— The Standard of Excellence as erected by 
the Bapt-St Sunday School Board, Nashville, Tenn., is being recog- 
nized more and more as a measure of efficiency and a well-rounded 
ard worth-while program. We rank second in standard schools, 
twenty-seven having at a ned the standard to date. * 

BUILDING AND EQUIPMENT— -Buildings are being improved 
in order to adequately care for improved Sunday Schools, witli 
correspond ng improvement in equ'pment. Over 100 new or re- 
modeled church houses are being built. The Architectural Depart- 
ment of the Sunday School Board stands ready to furnish expert 
advice so that money inve-sted in buildings may be wisely spent to 
meet modern needs. 

TEACHER TRAINING — It is the very heart and life of all Sun- 
day School work. Without tra'ned teachers, inferior work is in- 
evitable. With trained teachers, almost any ideal is possible. 
When churches realize the tremendous responsibility of so sacred 
a task as grafting the living truth of God -s will into living souls for 
time and eternity, they will arouse to the absolute necessity of en- 
trusting that task in the hands of only trained teachers. 

North Carolina stands well to the front in this work but we must 
press forward. This work is fostered through Training Schools in 
town or city churches, through the Summer Campaign for country 
churches, and through the Correspondence Course for those who 
cannot attend a class. 

During the year a splendid book "Building a country School" 
by Secretary E L. Middleton has been published and is receiving 
much favorable comment. It recognizes difficulties, present prac- 
tical plar.s for solving them and gives vision of what a country 
church, which measures up to its possibilities, may be.

R-COMMENDATIONS 

The urgency of the Sunday School task calls to each church, 

1. To adopt a definite program of persistent effort to reacir. 
more of the church members for the Sunday Schools. 

2. To provide better buldings and equipment to make a plac'i 
to hold and really teach the increased number enlisted. 

3. To plan for a worth-while program of all-round efficiency 
as embodied in the Standard of Excellence . 

4. To adopt a permanent Teacher Training policy looking to- 
ward enlisting every teacher and officer in the Normal Course and 
traning prc-spective officers and teachers for the future.

BfBLrCAL RECORDER 

The Biblical Recorder has been the organ of the Baptist State 
Convention of North Carolina for nearly ninety years. During this 
time it has sought to be true to its name and to fulfill its mission 
in the work of the Kngdom. It is the medium of information for 
our people in every phase of our work as a denomination. 

No people will ever act very far in advance of their interest in 
any undertaking and interest is determined by information and 
your committee realizes that perhaps the greatest need of thy 
masses among Baptist is to be thoroughly acquainted with our 
work and its needs in every detail. 

We would urge that our pastors make every effort to secure a 
wider reading of the Recorder by our people; we would also sug- 
gest that all the members of our churches give their heartiest sup 
port to campaign that is now on and being led by our B. Y. P. U. 
forces.

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE TO THE SANDY RUN 
ASSOCIATION 

As regards the liquor traffic and the liquor habit, prohibition i.s 
a settled question in the nation. The Eighteenth Amendment com- 



M NJrfij OF T.IE S VNDY RJN BVPTl T ASS 3 -lATi )^ 



XQ:ts our GDvernment to the no license poKiy, and as far as law 
4^063, the liquor traffii is dead. In other words, it is outlawed so 
that any man or woman that engage-s in it discounts his American 
<;-tizen3h:p and becomes a cr minal, rather than a patriot. 

As a matter of fact, however, both the liquor traffic and the 
liquor habit are with U3. The fight therefore is changed from a 
Ight aga.nst the licensed system to a fight against lawlessness and 
^.narchy. Therefore it behooves every Christian patriot, regardless 
of h.3 attitude on the wet and dry prohibition issue, to line up 
against the Lquor lawlessness throughout the country, emphasizin;;- 
the Lquor lawlessness throughout this Assoc'alion. 

The present indications are that the outlawed liquor traffic is 
very much alive. In fact, the Association Against the Prohibition 
Am.endment has declared that they would carry their fight in many 
(of the states to secure for Congress men pledged to mod fy the 
Volstead Act so as to allow the manufacture and sale ofb eer and 
1 ght w nes. They also propose to take a hand in the election ot 
d3:egates at the National Political Convention in 1924. Therefore 
it behooves all Chrisfan patriots to use their influence in their 
r33r.ective parties to defeat tne efforts of the liquor sympathizefs. 

Let every Christian not only obey the law, by refusing to pur- 
chase liquor, but let him prove his loyalty to the Government and 
liis support of the Flag by cooperating with the officers for the 
enforcement of law. We believe that such cooperation is neces- 
sary for the extermination of the liquor traffic, and therefore ex- 
hort the Chr>3tians to give any information to the officers that will 
assist them in arresting and convicting the liquor criminals. 

We commend the Anti-Saloon League for assisting the World 
League Against Alcoholism in its efforts to destroy the licensed 
liquor traffic throughout the world. The published statistics of the 
great decrease in crime and poverty, and the great increase in edu- 
cation, church affairs and material prosperity in the United Statet^ 
is a strong argument against the licensed system in other nations, 
and the purpose of Christian America to hold fast to prohibition 
and enforce it inspires the temperance organizations in other na- 
tions to go forward. This association gives assurance to the Anti- 
Saloon League that they have our prayers and support in their 
work for law-enforcement and world prohibition.

W. K. Collins read the report on Foreign Missions. On 
motion agreed to discuss Foreign Missions and read the

Walter M. Gillmore. 

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

Our Foreign Mission work groks. In sixteen foreign lands, we 
have now 891 churches; 211 or practically one-fourth of these 
churches are self-supporting; 442 or one-half have their own houses 
of worship. In add tion to the churches there are 2896 out-stations 
v.-hic'h give us a total of practically 4,000 stations where the Word 
of Gcd is preached regularly. 

Last year was the crowning year in baptisms, 12,611 were bap 
t?zed, which is a gain of 4,720 over last year. We have passed the 
100,000 mark in membership. We have 103 328 members. Thest 
gave $4.23 per capita last year. We have 796 -schools which were 
attended last year by 32,789 scholars. This is about equal to the 
number of students in our Baptist schools in the Southland. Ot 
course all of our schools in foreign lands are not of equal grade to 
those in the South, but we have our students in these foreign land^ 
under our tutelage quite as long as we have the students in our 
Southern schools. 

There were 1447 Sunday Schools, which had an enrollment of 
67,407. 

We have now 501 foreign missionaries and 2,820 native mission- 



IVXIMjTL 5r CF THE SANDY RLK BAtTIST ASSOCJATK N 11 



:aries. This is almC'St twice as many foreign missionaries, and al- 
most four times as many native missionaries as we had in 1919 ai 
t.ie beg nn.ng of the 75 iVt iixn Ciimpa-gn. 

The Board reported a debt ol $403,000 at the last Southern Bap- 
tist Convention. There has been no disposition to criticize th-vj 
^oaid because every cne of us know that the Board has been very 
concervative in making appropriations. It has appropriateed only 
a Ltcle above one-haxf of the amount that was proposed for it .n 
the 75 Million Campaign. The Convention was very serious about 
the situaiicn, and was anx-ous to do something to set th.s graai 
JBoaid forward in its wonderful work. 

After hear.rg of the Board s financial condition and of the more 
than fifty young people who were ready to be sent out to the fore-gn 
fields this year, the Convention passed a mc-st remarkable endorse- 
m.n: of the Board by raising through voluntary subscriptions from 
the d3le:^ates present enough money to send out these new mis- 
sionaries That was a very practical endorsement. It took placj 
in one of the most Gpiritual hours the Southern Baptist Convention 
■ever experienced. The story of that Friday night's session of th^j 
Convention has carried inspiration not only to great numbers of 
churches in the homeland but has enheartened the missionaries 
r,n every foreign field. 

In the spir t of what took place at the Southern Baptisi Conven- 
tion the Board at its June meeting appointed forty-eight new mis- 
sionaries who in the early fall of this year will go to their fields. 

In the face of the above facts, and at this critical time when the 
Board is burdened with debt, overwhelmed by th egrowth of the 
work, and appalled by vast unmet needs, the committee appeals to 
every Baptist in the Sandy Run Association to take this matter to 
heart, and that we do our utmost to pay our 75 Million Campaign 
pledges in full up to Dec. 1st and thus enable the Board to pay its 
lebts, support the mls^sionaries and provide for many, many moro 
distressing needs. The simple solution of our present and dis- 
tressing situation is for every Baptist to be loyal to Christ and pay 
his V0W.3.

to adopt, remarks by Walter M. Gillmore and W. A. Ayers, 

NEW TESTAMENT STEWARDSHIP 

Since the New Testament is plain on the doctrine of Christian 
Stewardship; since there is a far-reaching revival of Stewardship 



12 MINUTKS OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOiJATION 

sweeping the churches of America today; since the cooperating 
interests at home and abroad are in d. stressing need of financial 
relief at this time; smce our people are well able to finance their 
program; and s.nce the Southern Baptist Convention through its 
Conservation Commission has launched a South-wide stewardship 
nnd budget campa.gn to function through the State organizations 
and the d strict associations; 

THEREFORE, be it recommended: 

1. That we ask our people in the churches to pray with one ac- 
cord for an old t me revival of spiritual Christianity, a revival of 
repentance and faith, a revival that will cause our people to turn 
from pleasure loving self indulgence to self denial and Christian 
Stewaid^hip; a revival shot through with the spirit, the principles 
and the methods of New Testament evangelism.

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

The purpose of State iVIission work is to Christianize our own 
State. Thus the foundation is laid for a world-wide w^ork. 



MUTsXTES CF ThE SA: DY RLN BAITIST AStCClA'J IC ^ 13 



The work of the State Mission Board is d:vided as follows: 

1. The Department of Missionary — Pastor Assistance. Two 
lliuudred and two churches have been a-ssisted by the Board at a 
cGst of $56,342.53. This is a great work for these churches are able 
10 secure belter pastors and pay a living salary. 

2. The Department of Enlistment. This Department is under 
=lhe leadership of A. C. Haniby, with wour assistants. The namcG 
of 5,000 tithers were secured by these workers last year. Another 
.great work was the formation of fourteen fields and the location of 
€ff clent pastors on thcoc fields. 

3. The Department of Sunday Schools. Through this Depart- 
luent a nev/ day ha'3 dawned for Sunday Schools in North Carolina. 
The field workers go into every nook and corner with the inspira- 
tion tnat leads our people to a greater appreciation of the S. S. as 
y Kingdom factor. The churches realize as never before the need 
c.f be.ter build ngs and better teachers and more efficient work. It 
f=eems that it could be truly said that this department is doing more 
leal constructive work than any other part of our woi-k. 

4. The Department of the B. Y. P. U. Through the efforts of 
this Department many of our young people have yielded themselves 
for defin te -service and are being trained to be efficient workers. 

5. The Department of Church Building. The greatest era of 
church building is upon us. The Board has been of great service 
to the churches by furnish'ng up-to-date plans. The amount of 
money allowed this Department does not permit it to help all de- 
serving churches. 

6. Department of Evangelism. This Department gives itseif to 
the saving of the lost. La.3t year 2,032 members were added to the 
churches through this Department. If it had not been for these 
Evangelists many of these would have remained unsaved. 

7 The Book Department. This Department has been organiz- 
ed only two years. Last year it sold $50,000.00 worth of books and 
other supplies. The Kingdom work is being strengthened through 
this Department by the spread of religious knowledge. 

Unless we all pay our pledges to the Seventy-five Million Cam- 
pa:"gn the State Mission \vork will suffer. Let us all stand by the 
work in its greatest hour of need. 

Respectfully submitted.

REPORT ON EDUCATION 

The Bapf-3t State Convention is undertaking to maintain one 
college for young men at Wake Forest and two for young women, 
Meredith and Chowan, These three institutions together enrolled 
last year 1,038 students, includ'ng 81 min!tserial students and 21 
ptudsnt volunteers. Their plants and equipment are valued ar 
$991, 340. 4a. The total of their endowments amount to $1, 263,902.2(3. 

Our five high schools are Dell, Buie's Creek, Wingate, Liberty 
Piedmont and BoiKng Springs. These enrolled last year 1,421 stu- 
dents, including 65 ministerial studants, and 9 student volunteers. 
The'r joint property is valued at $540,000.00, and their endowmenr.> 
aggregate $1,900 000.00. 

The Heme Mission Board maintains in N. C. 8 high school-' 
v>hich enrolled last session 1,869 students, including 61 ministerial 
s udents and 53 student volunteers. The aggregate value of their 
plants was $442,150.00; their endowments, $25,500 00 

N. C. Baptists also take part in the support of the Southern Bap- 
tist Theological Seminary at Louisville, The Womans Trainini^ 
School at Louisville, the Southwestern Baptist Seminary at Fort 
Worth, and the Baptist Bible Institute of New Orleans. These in 
stitutions enrolled last year 1,501 students, including 162 volunteers 
for foreign fields. Their property value aggregate $1,425,343.75, 
their endowments aggregate $2,905,417.14. 

Educational institutions owned by Baptisl individuals in North 
Carolina are Oxford College, Pineland School for Girls, Mountaiia 
Park Hgh School, and the Orphanage High School. These institu- 
tions enrolled last session 389 students, including two student vol- 
unteers. Their property value is not included in the Orphanage, i.-; 
$135,000.00. 

While the above figures seem large, and are, they are not larger 
than the needs of the institutions reuire; and they do not by any 
means adequately represent the value of the service rendered by 
them to the Baptist denomination and the Kingdom of God. In 
support of this statement, one has only to remember, first, that the 
rapidly increasing demand for special raining in every worthy hu- 
man enterprise, of whatever nature, suggests at least an equal need 
for such training for service in the Kingdom of our Lord. 

Second, the policy of compulsory education now being pursued 
in N. C. means that the next generation of our citizens will be com- 
paratively well educated, and that the general average of intel- 
lectual culture will be far above what it is now. And this fact in 
turn means, of course, that our children and their children will re- 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 15 

quire educated leaders, not only in the pulpit, but also in the Sun- 
day School, and in all of our Christian enterprises. For while, of 
course, the first and most important quality in any Christian worker 
is sp.rituality and consecration, these qualities alone will not enlist 
the .ncerest nor command the following of the cultivated masses. 

Third, the most suttle and persistent assault on our faith now is 
the field of natural and intellectual sciences as taught in our higher 
institutions of learning. And in those schools these assaults must 
be met and foiled. Only in our Baptist instituDans can we have 
any voice as to the character of the teachings given to our young 
people, and it is essential, therefore, that these be maintained at 
all hazards. 

No little nervousness and considerable alarm have been cause.l 
recently by agitation, most of which has been due to the lack of in- 
formation and misapprehension. Our people should know and re- 
member that the trustees in control of their educational institu- 
tions are confirmed every year by our associations and our conven- 
tions, that these trustees are supposed to be chosen from our mosi 
intellectual, most devout, and most faithful men and women; that 
they in turn select teachers for all of our schools; that therefore, 
they ought to know, and do know, better than those on the outside 
what is- taught in our institutions and the general results of such 
teachings; that exactly the same sciences are being taught now 
that were taught thirty-five years ago, and the output from these 
institutions of young men and women that they have turned out, 
in their devout and faithful service, ought to reassure those zealous 
souio who fear that our schools and colleges are being captured 
by the enemy. 

Let our brethren and sisters remember these things and set their 
hand anew to the task of strengthening their own institutions for 
the mighty work to which God has called them. 

Furthermore, wh le these Baptist schools in N. C. are enrollr'^g 
every year nearly 200 young ministers and about 80 young men and 
women for work on the foreign fields, there is still a great dearth 
of both ministers and missionaries. Let the members of our 
churches, therefore, realizing this pressing need, pray constantly, 
both in their public service and in their private devotion, that the 
"Lord of the harvest may send forth more laborers for the vine- 
yard."

Harrill. 

W. B. Jenkins read the report on Home Missions. 

The regular committee on Home Mission report being absent, we, 
the appointed committee, beg to submit the following report: 

The Board's receipts for 1914 were $169,988.92; 1922 they were, 
$1,002,193.07. An increase of $832,204.15 in eighteen years. 

Then the Board reported 10,551 bapil^ms, this year 39,770. 

Then there were 20,570 additions to tae churches, this year, 
59,597. 

In 1905 the Board had no special department of evangeiiGm. 
Shortly after that the department was organized and through it 
there have been 152,846 converts baptised, 208,643 additions to the 
churches and 23,260 volunteers for the ministry or definite missioi: 
work. 

All the other departments of the Board's work have advanced 
in a similar way. Surely we have reason for abundant thanks- 
giving to God, for His marvelous favor upon the work of our Home 
Mission Board. 

It is our one great South-wide missionary agency and has been 
the greatest single factor in helping to make the South a mighty 
Baptist empire, especially has its power been felt in the newer sec- 
tions of the South, the Mississippi Valley and great Southwest. 

While Southern Baptists have made mighty progress, there are 
greater needs and vaster opportunities at present than ever before 
in our history. 

There are millions of lost souls whom we must reach and our 
people must be enlisted in all of our denominational life and activi- 
ties. 

Our Home Mission Board is heavily in debt on account of the 
great enlargement of the work and the falling off in recepis due 
largely to the deflation in prices in general. 

The last report of the Board states that if we raise 74 million 
dollars by the close of the 75 Million Campaign, and the Home Board 
receives its due proportion, the Board's debt can be paid and the 
Board's work increased 50 per cent over its present operations. 

Let us come to the help of this great work, and all other in- 
terests as well. 

Write to the Home Board, Atlanta, Ga., for tracts and book on 
the subject.

The twenty-six ministerial students of the Boiling 
Springs High School was presented to the Association. 

The tuition of these ministerial students having not 
been provided for, W. K. Collins made known to this body 
that there was a brother present who said that he would 
i:ay one-half of the tuition of these ministerial students 
but he did not feel at liberty to make his name known. 
Whereupon the churches proceeded to subscribe the one- 
half of this tuition not provided for, $45.00 being the tui-

ANNUAL REPORT BOILING SPRINGS HIGH SCHOOL 

To the Kings Mountain, Sandy Run, and Gaston County Baptist 
Associations: 

Your Board hereby submits its sixteenth annual report since 
open.ng of the school. These have been strenuous years and have 
called for faithful work and much sacrifice on the part of Teachers, 
Trustees, and Friends but the blessings of success and the guiding- 
hand of God have ever been with the school. May we ever follow 
where He leads. 

The total enrollment for last year was 269, of these 132 were 
girls and 137 boys. There were in the last graduating class 60, 
of these 28 were girls and 32 boys. This was double the number 
of the preceding class, and makes the total number of graduates to 
date 316. Unfortunately a small per cent, of those who enter the 
Gchool remain until graduation, but fortunately many who do not 
graduate here lay broad and strong the foundation for useful man- 
hood and womanhood. 

By reference to our catalogues, It will be seen that the lower 
classes have gradually decreased in numbers while the higher 
.classes have increased in greater proportions. As a result, we 
dropped the lower grades from year to year. This year we have 
dropped the seventh grade and now start with the eighth grade. 



18 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOClA'l ION 

Many see in this tendency the coming of a Junior College as soon 
as we are properly equipped for it. 

Total charges to students last year were $39,813.03 and total 
collected $37,075.62, leaving a balance to be collected of $2,737.41. 
Disbursements for the year were as follows: Operating expenses 
of the School, $34,213.05; pa.d for permanent improvements, $1,- 
629.33 and on back accounts $1,185.62, leaving in the bank from col- 
lections $47.62. In the amount above named as collected, $1,750.00 
were received from the Educational Board of the State Convention. 

Your Board most heartily commends Prof. Huggins and his eff.- 
cient corps of teachers of last year and this for their faithflu ser- 
vices and loyalty to the School. 

How much your School owes to its faithful alumni who ehow 
their loyalty at every opportunity and who constitute its best ad- 
vertisement we shall never know. These are rap.dly taking posi- 
tions of honor and leadership in church and State. The Alumni 
Association at its last annual meeting, resolved to raise $500.00 
during thjs year toward the endowment of the Chair of the Bible. 

PRESENT TERM 

The resignation of Prof. Lee and Miss Lide and Quinn left three 
vacancies in the faculty which were filled as follows: J. L. Love- 
lace, A.B., Wake Forest, Science and Bible; Miss Annie R. Line- 
berry, A.B., Meredith College, Mathematics and Science; and Misri 
Rachael A. Jones, Graduate in Piano, Limestone College, Assistant 
in Mu'Sic. 

The following report to this Board from the Principal for the 
present term is self-explanatory: 

"The enrollment to date by classes is as follows: Freshman 
Class, 63; Sophomore, 58; Junior, 68; and Senior, 74, making a total 
of 263. Of this number, 154 are boys and 109 are girls. There are 
170 boarding students and 93 day students. There are 217 church 
members. We have students from N. C, S. C, Ala., and Oklahoma. 
Eleven N. C. Counties are represented. There are 135 from Cleve- 
land County, 44 from Rutherford, and 7 from Gaston. 

"The special departments are as follows: Bible, 163; Music, 83; 
Home Economics, 21; Art, 6; and Art Education, 7. There are 26 
Ministerial and 10 volunteers. The B. Y. P. U.'s have an enroll- 
ment of 8S." 

MEMORIAL BUILDING 

Under authority given at the last sessions of the Associations, 
ypur Board borrowed $2,150 00 with which the exterior of the build- 
ing was completed and the auditorium almost completed — near 
enough for the holding of Commencement in it. The teachers and 



MINUTKS OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 19 

students assumed the task of raising funds to seat the Auditorium 
with opera chairs at a cost of nearly $2,000.00 without expense to 
the Board. They only have a small balance to raise yet. It will 
require from $9,000 to $10,000 yet to complete this building, but. 
when completed, it would be a credit to any college. We now owe 
about $10,000 for borrowed money on this building, but have nearly 
tnough to pay it if it were all collected. 

After careful deliberation at its last meeting, your Board decided 
unan'mously to issue bonds in the sum of $40,000 to be secured by 
a mortgage or Deed of Trust on the School property, the proceeas 
tc be applied as follows: First, to discharge the present indebted- 
ness aganst the Memorial Building, to complete the building, to 
in-stall a central heating plant, to purchase privately owned interest 
in the present heating plant and to erect an elevated water tanR. 
fcaid bond issue to begin to mature on the first day of January, 
1929, one-fifth to be due at that time and one-fififth each year there- 
aft3r until they are all paid. 

The terms of the following members of the Board of Trustees 
exp.re at the approaching sessions of the three Associations, to-wit: 
Kings Mountain Association — Rev. J. W. Suttle, A. E. Bettis, W. W. 
Washburn, Z. R Walker, D. F. Hord and C. D. Forney by resigna- 
tion, term expiring In 1925; Sandy Run — Rev. W. T. Tate, G. B 
Pruette, J. J. Edwards, Rev. W. K. Collins, and D. M. Harrill; and 
Gaston County — J. E. C. Foard and N. B. Kendrick, by limitation. 
The resignation and removal from the Association of Dr. J. L. Vip- 
perman and Rev. T. H. King, whose terms would have expired in 
1926 and 1927, respectively, leave two other vacancies to be filled 
for the unexpired terms. 

•It will be recalled that a large number of churches and indi- 
viduals made pledgee last year to cover the tuition of the ministerial 
students for the year. A few have not paid their pladges in full. 
At the regular rate of tuition, the total due on account of ministerial 
students was $970.00. On this was paid $835.76, leaving a balance 
of $134.24 No provision was made last year for balances due by 
Kings Mountain and Sandy Run Associations on ministerial educa- 
tion for the preceeding year. That matter still remains open. Your 
Board had hoped to be able in this report to recommend some better 
method for providing for the tuition of the ministerial students, 
but, so far, no satisfactory plan has been found. In any event, gbm'3 
way must be worked out by which we can continue to handle this 
item of expenee. We could ill afford to lose the moral influence 
of these 26 ministerial students whose lives, as a rule, are models 
for other students. Other like schools offer free tuition to them 
and we cannot and must not do less. 

The Gaston County Association, recently, donated the sum of 



20 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAt^TIST ASSCCIATION 

$1,100 to the endowment of the Chair of the Bible, making a total 
endowment to date of $2,500.00. 

Asain, we thank most heartily the pastors and ministers of 
these three Associations, who are all advisory members of this 
Board for the hearty co-operation that we have always received ai 
their hands. God only knows how much your .school owes to these 
heralds of the cross for its marked success to date. Brethren, in 
conclusion, we commend to you the words of Paul to the Corin- 
thian Church (I. Cor. 1:10): "Nok I beseech you, brethren, by the 
name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, 
and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly 
joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment." 
This 29th September, 1923.

B. Y. P. U. REPORT 

Since the B. Y. P. U. haG been recognized in the churches of our 
association there has been a noted increase in the spirituality of 
the young people; they are fast becoming leadars in our cliurclieo 
and Sunday Schools and in all phases of church work. 

There have been several of our young men called into the min- 
istry. 

There is no other organization in our churches toaay that is 
giving the training and opportunities for Christian service as the 
B. Y. P. U. We hope every church in the association will see the 
need of the B. Y. P. U. as the training camp for our future leaders. 
Because the church can never accomplish its mission until it has 
trained leaders. It was necessary that Christ put the teacher-s 
through a training course before they were able to go into the world 
and do the work which He commissioned them to do. 

We have twenty-one active unions reported with a total mem- 
bership of five hundred and eighty-eight. Out of this number one 
hundred and sixteen taken study courses, two hundred and twenty- 
two are daily Bible readers. 

The director of your association earne-stly desires the coopera- 
tion of all the pastors in helping organize a B. Y. P. U. in every 
church in the association.

w'oman's work, but the pastors are becoming more interested 

they all see that the churches in which women and children are at 
work are the progressive churches. We have never felt it a duty

Benediction by Dr. M. L. Kestler. 

Your Committee on Ministerial Support beg leave to report as 
followG: We believe that the support of our ministers is our most 
important work, and we insist that if the country churches and thf^ 
country preachers are to contribute what they should to the civili- 
zation of the South, they must be better supported. 

We should be as generous in improving church conditions as 
we are in improving school conditions. Our teachers salaries have 
been increased and in all the avocation-s salaries have been in- 
creased except the pastors. We find from our minutes last year S 
churches paid their pastors over $10,000, while 39 churches paid 
$7,000. The average salary of our country pastors is $700 (where 
they supply 4 churches). This is not enough to support a family 
and cur country pastors work on the farm 5 days in each week. 
No pastor can do what the Lord and the people expect of him with 
no time to study or visit thesick. 

Therefore we recommend that our pastors quit work on the 

farm and depend on the churches for support and that they visit 

each family on their charge at least twice a year and the sick ne 

often as necessary and all their spare time preparing their sermoi ♦. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. P. D. WITHROW,

Report on Ministerial Relief. Report adopted as read. 

The Committee on Obituary report. Ninety-two of 
our good brethren and sisters have died during the past 
year. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Re- 
port adopted. B. P. Green, C. H. Padgett, E. L. Mc- 
Daniel. 

In view of the fact that several of the reports were not 
ready when called for and none of our brethren felt any 
obligation to special preparation on the subject. There- 
fore 

Resolved by this Association, First, That we appoint 
one man to report on a subject and another man to deliver 
a prepared address on that subject. Second, That a 
Committee on Program be appointed to work this matter 
out for the Association and prepare the program for our 
next meeting. By motion, adopted. 

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL RELIEF 

The Baptist Ministers' Relief Board of North Carolina, after 
thirty-two years of faithful service, closed its work and pas^sed out 
of existence last February. The funds in its keeping known as 
"The Permanent Investment Fund" were passeed over to the Bap- 
tist Foundation. The Relief and Annuity Board was chartered in 
September, 1918, in Dallas, Te^cas, by order of the Southern Baptist 
Convention. It has invested assets today of:

ReKef Department $ 419,027.25 

Annuity Department 730,061.27 

Total $lTl49,088.52 

The Board gathered and invested in the farm of endowment and 
rc'Serve, at the rate of $383,029.50 per year. Also it has paid to Its 
old and re.ired preachers $300,173.31, or an average of $100,057.77 
per year for past three years. The Board paid out during past 
year to her relief beneficiaries the sum of $128,966.89, which is 
$10^000.00 more than we paid last year. Eight hundred and four 
beneficiaries were aided last year, seventy-three of those reside in 
North Carolina. There were also forty-six men, and twenty-seven 
widows, and that the men are receiving on an average of $14.04 per 
month, or $168.48 annually, and the widows are receiving $12.27 per 
month, or $147.24 annually. 

There are in North Carolina one hundred members of the A7i 
nuity Fund. 

We should say to our ministers — Give yourselves whole-hearted- 
ly to work, be not afraid, if you fail, suffer or die we will take care 
ol ycu. 

Therefore, we, the Committee, recommend that we increase the 
salaries of our preachers on our hard fields and increase both de- 
partments of our work so as to amply take care of our old and re- 
^■-red preachers.

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE* [ ' ' ' - 

We have reached the high level of national prohibition. We 
have reached it, not iDy'a single bound, but by the slow process of 
education, supported , by legislation, through many years, which has ~ 
resulted in the eighteenth amendment. The wisdom of such public 
education' was evidenced wlien the "boys and - girls "who received 
scientific temperance instruction in public schools, secured by legis- 
lation in many states, became the leader sin the great campaigns 
which ended in state and national prohibition. We should give no J 
little place in this'Victory over intemperance to the temperance les- 
sons taught in the Sunday schools "for a number of years, which, 
steadily built up a sentiment for prohibtion in our citizenship. ' 

The following material belssings are ours, because of national 
prohibition: In a single dry year, saving bank depositors increased 
173.000, while th'e total of their savings bank- deposits increased by 
$338,000,000.^ -- - - .^^ ~ .>.\ ■'- - ; - 

Employers of labor give unanimous testimony -to the sobrbie*y 
of labor, and' its -increased efficiency,- in their phohibition days. 
There are now :no 'drunken Saturdays, Monday, is as w^elcome a 
day as jpay day.; , ' '*;--' ^ , ' " 

; .Travel is safer. .Drunkenenss is almost unknown on railroad 
trains. The auto driver knows that w^hiskey and gasoline cannot 
mix with safety to human life. . ; - _ - _ 

■=;- Charity organizations tell us their burdens have been relieved 
anywhere" from 25 per cent to 75 per cent or more.- - 

ChurcTies have increased their membership with an average of 
more than 2,500 memherg^ for every day of the year. New church 
buildings by millions of money are built, while benevolent and mis- 
sionary offerings have increased l)y such sums as our most optomis- 
tic workers never dreamed of. The recent national jmlitical gather- 
Jngs gave ample proof that there was not sentiment enought to insert 
a beer and wine plank in the platform The western and southern 
parts, of U. S. A. are so dry that neither party could win an elec- 
;tion on anything like a wet platform. - : ^ " 

r" "In our state, there are serious problems with the inforcement 
of, the prohibition law. The Federal Prohibition Act makes the 
buyer as much of a violator of this law as the person who makes,

sells or transports alcoholic, beverages. The observance of -the 
law is ot'more importance than its jnforcement. In our stats last 
vear there were 1.420 arrests made by the prohibition department_ 
1,273 convictions. 209 automobiles and property to the value

The Home Mission Board, notwithstanding its burensome debt 
and consequent retrenchment in its froces, presents a wonderful 
outlook for the future. So marvelous have been God's favors upon 
our people in the last few years, and especially during the five- 
year campaign, that we are able by virture of our forces and re- 
sources, to seize the present situation and make Southern Baptist 
the greatest single religious force in the South and throughout our 
nation. The South constitutes the nursery and the training ground, 
the grainery, the source -of supplies .indeed, for our conquest in 
all lands. If we fail here we fail everywhere. If we succeed here 
we can succeed everywhere. May Gos help our people on this great 
day of opportunity wath high resolve to meet the issues worthily 
and hasten the coming of His kingdom throughout the earth. 

The following is a brief summary of some features of the 
Board's work for the last five years: Sermons and addresses 
802,382; prayer meetings, 101,075; religious visits 1.238,210; bap- 
tisms 203.532; total additions to churches 324,086; workers' con- 
ferences held 4,667; volunteers for Christian service 15,D49; church 
houses built or improved 2,225; .Sunday schools organized 3,183; 
copies Scripture given 55,533; pages tracts distributed 35,812,479. 

The 75 Million Campaign closes with December, 1924, and it 
has been stated that if we raise the full 75 Million Dollars and 
Home Missions receives its due , proportion we can pay off all of 
the Board's debt and be ready for an aggressive work ' for the 
future. , '" - , '-'"'■' .- ^. . -^ ' " ■■

. REPORT ON SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

Robert Raikes did a far greater' deed than perhaps he ever 
llreamed of when in July, 1780, in Soot Alley, Gloucester, England, 
he organized tlie teaching service we^ now know as the Sunday 
School. Churches to some extent soon saw the advantages of the 
Sunday School and through the years this work his grown until 
today it is one of the greatest factors in our churches for the pro- 
motion of the Kingdom work. 

It is gratifyiug to note that never in the history of the Sunday 
School has there been so much inteerst shown aud progress made 
as during the past few years. We seem to have caught a new 
and greater vision, and today our Sunday Schools are reorganiz- 
ing along more efficient lines of endeavor. Our ' State Sunday' 
School Board has been putting forth a great effort to have forty 
Standard Sunday Schools in the State before October 1st, or the 
15th at the latest. The last account we had they lacked nine hav- 
ing reached this number. . . " T . 

Great progress is beiing made in North Carolina In .Sunday 
School efficiency. This State is, we believe, the only State in the 
Southern Baptist Convention that has more than one Advanced 
Standard Sunday School and we have only two. One of these is 
at Double Springs, Cleveland County, the other being at Dunn. 
More and more the churches are coming to realize the necessity of

.properly housing' the' Sunday School and' great progress is being 

, made along this line'.' It is almost a hopeless taskj.o-try to reach 

people if not properly prepared to take care of them. -'^ .:.-j^ ^•./•' 

Training classes are being conducted in many of our Sunday 
Schools. " Without doubt_ this is one of the greatest tasks that 
confronts us today, the task of training officers and teachers for 
real'Standard work. Prom 1915 to -1918 there were 2 208 diplomas 
awarded in this State From 1920 to 1923 there were 4,639 diplomas 
".awarded. -Prom 1915 to 1918 the number of Ked Seal holders was ^ 
449,:' From 1920 to 1923 the number holding' Red Seal Diplomas 
was 1,217./' From 1915 to 1918 there were 112 Blue Seal Diplomas 
awarded in North Carolina, while from 1920 to 1923 there was an 
increase to even four hundred. At the last account we had there 
were 10,067 holding diplomas in North Carolina. "We have in this , _ 
State 2,263 churches with a membership of 337 258. There lare 
2.159 Sunday Schools with a membership of 274,524. There are - ^ 
125 churches that have no Sunday School. During the last four -.^ 
years the growth in membershijp was 60,769, greater than in the.": 
previous ten years. There are 500,000 people in North Carolina > 
not in any Sundaj School who really belong to the Baptist^Sunday ' j" 
School — if ttey could be said to belong to any at all. We must - 
not think of these people as living in some remote section of the .. ^ 
State. They are all around us. Our need is to take a religious v,-;, 
census to ascertain our possibilities and then god after them. ' - • "

was never done for them before, and yet upon the whole we are 
very far from doing the adequate thing by many of our beneficiaries.

SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL REPORT ON BOILING SPRINGS 
HIGH SCHOOL. 

To the Kings Mountain, Sandy Run and Gaston County Baptist 

Association: 

Twenty years ago the Kings Mountain Association, in session' 
at Zoar Church, launched the first movement for the locating and 
building of what is now the Boiling Springs High SchooL A little 
more than one ye-ir later the Sandy Run Association joined in the 
movement, m the l^all or iy07, tue scnool for the first time openeu 
its doors to students . Today your board submits its seventeenth 
annual report and points with some degree of pardonable pride 
to the success of your school during these years. But, whatevei 
degree of success it has achieved, it has all been made possible h> 
the sacrifices and prayers of the good people of these associations 
under the guidanec of an Allwise Providence. . - 

You now have a plant consiting of nine acres of land and four

■1^ ^ - BOND ISSUE '^ "-.-v^./ '. 

^ It will be recalled that your Board was authorized last year,tOv^ - 
issue bonds in the. sum of $40,000.00 to cover cost of improvements .- 
above enumerated and for -purchasing some property The b nds 
were issued as of January' 1st, 1924, and are secured by a deed of 
trust on the property. They bear 6 per cent interest, payable. 7 
semi-annually and mature in five series of $8,000.00. each The first 'J; U^ 3 
maturing on January 1st, 1929, and one Jan. '1st each year there-;; 
after to, and including, Jan. 1st, 1933. The Wacovia Bank & Trust -• 
Co., of Winston-Salem is trustee in the deed of trust. Only aboTit'^-- 
$16,000.00 of these bonds have so far been sold, but all must be/_ 
sold soon to make the improvements above enumerated. — ..'--^.- \, 

Some people have asked, "How^ do you propose meeting th? 
principal and interest of these bonds as they mature?" Our answer 
is: That these three great Associations wit han aggregate of - ■ 
more than 100 churches and more than 26 000 members will find 
a way ta provide for that. They- have never failed us yet; they" . 
will not fail us in the future. 

We are happy to announce, in this connection, that we have 
the assurance from the Board of Education ol the Bapist State 
Convention that your school will receive next year from the-" 
Board, $2,400 00 to pay the interest on our bonds and $3,600.00 addi- :. 
tional to supplement the income of the school 'in meeting running ■ 
expenses. The latter wull more than take care of the tuition of ■ --- 
ministerial students and volunteer students. It is believed that 
the next session of the Baptist State Convention will make per- 
manent arrangements for the payment of all indebtedness, of the -^ 
secondary schools to be fostered by that Board and to supplement 
their income for meeting current expenses. This as your Board 
sees it, is the only wise method of maintaining our denominational 
schools Believing that our school in the future, along with other - 
similar schools in the system, will be properly cared for t)y the - 
State Board, we most earnestly appeal to all the churches in these 
three Associations to contribute liberally to all the objects fostered. . 
by the State Convention, Christian education being one of the 7 

objects. -. - -■^_ ""-■ V r ; ' V - ~ M :' -

Whereas, tl>e Boiling Springs High School, by and with the 
[ consent oT the FIducational Board of the Baptist State ConvenJi.cn 
of North Carolina, issued as of January Ist,^ 1924, ^40 000.00 m

^ we most earnestly ask the Board- of Education of the Baptist State 
reconvention of North. Carolina- to request said convention at its

Remarks by J. B. Jones. Report adopted. 

The life of a nation depends, upon its schools. The value of 
a school depends upon its ideals. The ideals, of a school have 
their highest worth only as thej' are Christian. It is the duty of 
the churches to make Christian ideals dominant in Education. 

To this end North Carolina Baptists have inaugurated a broad 
and systematic educational program They are maintaining in 
this State one college for men at Wake Forest, and two for women — 
Meredith at Raleigh, and Chowan at Murfreesboro. This year Wake 
Forest enrolled 873. including 90 ministerial students and volun- 
teers; the two women colleges enrolled 582, including 26 student 
volunteers. The combined property value of the three, including 
endowment, is $3,453,700. , - ''.-_.- 

Mars Hill and Wingate are maintained as Junior Colleges, 
enrolling last year 738. incuding 76 ministerial students and volun- ' 
teers with a combined property value of $261,030. 

Three High Schools enrolled 780 in High School and 389 in 
the Elementary School .including 82 ministerial students and.volun- 
_"teers. Their property valuation is $369,065: . - _ '--■': 

In addition to these institutions, the Home Mission Board main- 
tains seven High Schools, enrolling last year 776 in High School 
and 284 in Elementary School, including 62 ministerial students and 
-volunteers. / -. ^ 

The total for all Baptist Schools in the State are: students 



: MINUTES OF THE SANDY n :T^rAPTIFT' A^^SOriA'l K-K 19 

'enrolled, 4.422; ministeriaj-.sti)den+s- a^-d student volunteers, 336. 
Total property valuation $4,521,488. * ^ 

Soutliwide . institutions in -.vhich we have a part include the 
Southe n Baptist. Theological Seminary. Louisville/ Ky.; the South 
western Theological Seminary, Fort Worth Tex., and the Baptist 
^Bible Institute, New 'Orleans. Those' institutions altogethe ren- 
rolled 1,484 pupils, and their property is valued at $2,277,000. 
/, . While the $5.000,00.00, in round numbers, which we have in- 
vested in school property in this State seems a large sum. it's 
•small in comparison .with the many millions invested in , State 
schools; and the few tliousands whicli we raise annually for our 
schools is a trifling sum' when compared with the State's annual 
appropriation to her high schools, colleges ar^.d university, -^n addi- 
tion- to 'maintaining these institutions themselves, we are helping 
to support our 330 young miiiisterial and missionary students, 
"Which are being trained in tliem; on these we expend about $18 000 
a year. , - " . , . - 

The necessity for maintaining our schools, great as it has been 
in the past, must increase rather than diminish for the future, for 
the following reasons: ■• 

.1st Because our institutions must be kept in the front rank 
along with, those of the State in the cultural training that -they 
give, or we cannot hope to keep our Baptist boys and girls in bur 
schools. , ^ ', - . 

2nd. Heretofore, practically nine-tenths "of our educated min- 
isters and missionaries have come out of our Baptist institutions; 
and in the nature of the case, these still must be trained in our 
schools or* nowhere. Moreover, the State is rapidly enlarging and 
strengthening her educational program, and compelling all her 
children to be educated. This, of course, means a much more intel- 
ligent membership in our churches, and that we must educate a 
still larger proportion of our ministers and leaders; for an educat- 
ed membership will demand an educated leadership. 

3rd. Because of the tendency of some students of science to 
attack the Bible from the standpoint of science, we must train 
our God-fearing men and women to meet these scientists on their 
own ground, and while pursuing all knowledge in all realms, to 
relate all knowledge and all science to God. In our schools the 
Bible is revered and taught as the inspired word of God, and the 
study of it is required of all.- ~; ■ 

4th. The denominational schol emphasizes not only the re- 
ligious spirit but the' denominational principles as well, and thus . 
they help to enlighten and strengthen their students in respect to 
our distinctive doctrines, and also to enlist .them loyally in our

A brief glance at the statistics of the Foreign Mission Board of 
the Southern Baptist Convention brings a most inspiring assurance 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RU.N APTIST A^'^O^'ATK^V 23 



ocer the sucess of our foreign mission cause. 



We have in our foreign mission fields 1,095 churches, in which 
pre err-jlled 111,872 members This is one-twenty-seventh as many 
churches as are in the bounds of the Southern Baptist Convent on. 
and one-thirtieth a smany members. Three hundred and eight of 
our churches abroad, or about one-th:Td, are self-supporting. This 
shows a gain of 97 over the year before, or an increase of self- 
snpporfng churches of almost 50 per cent in one year." 

We sent out 54 new missionaries du-ing the year, bringing the_ 
total of our foreign missionaries up to 544. After deducting losses 
we made a net gain of 43. This gain is enheartening. but is far 
below the number which should have been sent. We need to send 
this year 229 others. 

The native working force now numbers 2,494. The building up 
of this native. working force is of the gravest moment. We need 
many foreign missionaries now, and in the future the call will 
perhaps be even more insistent, yet we cannot depend upon mis- 
sionaries sent from America to do the major work of preaching to 
any country. The final evanaglization of every land must be done 
Through the native workers. r^ - 

We have had an encouraging year in our Foreign Mission 
Schools. Never. have students flocked in such numbers; never have 
so many been accepted; never such large numbers turned away. 
We have 860 schools of all grades, in which were enrolled 35,106 
students. This number is about the same as the number of stu- 
dents' in all our Baptist schools in the Southland. Twenty of these 
schools are kindergartens; five are colleges, the majority are of the 
lower primary and middle school grades. Thirteen are normal and 
training schools; The crown of all, of course, is the Bible and 
Theological Schools which now number seventeen, in which schools 
are being.-trained 4;16 young preachers. While these schools are 
all rendering a great service in the general uplift of the people^ 
our chief interest in them ' lies in the fact that through them we 
turn many to Christ, and train these students for more effective 
Christian service. Our schools are tremendous evangelizing agen- 
cies. In many sections the far larger number who are baptized 
into the churches are won in the school. If the school is needed 
in the homeland for the" development of our denominational life, 
for the provision of a capable ministry, they are infinitely more 
necessary for the same objects in foreign lands. 
- .'- We have medical work in three countries — China, Africa and 
Mexico. We have among our foreign missionary force, sixteen 
male and three female physicians and seven trained nurses. There 
are nineteen native physicians and 29 native nurses. There are 23 
buildings of all descriptions in our nine hospital plants. In these 



:>--,

are room for 796 beds. In these hospitals were treated last, year 
6,299 patients. The patients outside of the hospitals were 70,415. 
The total treatments given reached the amazing number of 294,422. 
We have Publishing Houses organized in China, Japan,. Mexica, 
Brazil, Argentina anc" Italy, and embroyonic publishing interests in 
all the other fields. These publishing plants brought out books, 
tracts. Bibles. Testaments, Sunday School and B. Y. P. U. Quarter- 
lies, Sunday School Leaflets, denominational papers in vast quan- 
tities 84,944,180 pages of literature were distributed. The silent, 
but none the less effective workings of the printed page, are not 
every time manifest, but we have many instances of the. triumphant 
achievements of the Gospel sent forth in printed form. Many in- 
dividuals have been converted through this means; many a home 
-which was otherwise closed to the missionary has been opened 
through a Gospel tract or a Testament. We have a number of 
churches that have been organized as a result of osmeone having 
read the Word of God from the printed page. 

Thus- our work abroad "presse forward with, the favor 
of God upon it. Southern Baptists rejoice in it. yet they are not 
snpportinsr it as they ought and can. The Board has been com- 
pelled to halt in its great program riglit at the time when it could 
press the work most advantageously.-' '■'.-. 

, In May, 1923, the Board reported a debt of $403,000. In spiTe of 
the severest economies this debt grew by May, 1924, to $711,000. 
When appropriations were^ made for 1924 over $1,600,000 in re- 
quests from the fields were denied. The Board was able to appro- 
priate for 1924 only for courrent expenses. It allowed nothing 
for buildings and equipment. At its meeting in. June,.: 1924,- the 
Board decided not to send out new missionaries this year^ except in 
a few instances where the salary and expenses have been especially 
provided. This means that practically' all new equipment and new 
missionaries were cut off from -the foreig nflelds this year^ What : 
this lack of help will mean to the cause no one can estimate. • -^ - 

The situation is distressing. The only hope for remedy for it 
is in the payment of our 75 Million Campaign pledges. If these 
pledges are paid we ca ntake care ot the work:. 

-We call upon our churches to rally with heroic sacrifice to- ._;^ 
the completion of the great 75 Million Campaign task. • ^ ' '^w :^ i,%-.^^

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE 

We are passing through a crisis in the enforcement of our pro- 
hibition laws. President Coolidge was forced to reorganize the 
Prohibition Enforcement Department and has divided the country 
into districts with an official in charge of each district. We have 
at Charlotte the headquarters for North and South Carolina and 
Georgia. Central control from Washington was a failure, and a 
recent survey shows that Washington, our national capital, is the 
wettest city in the nation. Atlanta the wettest in the South and 
conditions generally bad all over the country. 

Forty-two organizations, some with unlimted resources, are 



6 MINUIES OF JHESANDV KU N B API 1ST ASSOCIA'l ION 

now fighting prohibition and every person who makes, sells or 
buys are lending their aid to this fight. While conditions have 
greatly improved since the enactment of the eighteenth amend- 
ment in 1920, we must not lose sight of the fact that we still face 
a g-ganiiC task and must not deceive ourselves into the belief that 
all is well, 

Vve should strive as never before to reach the young people 
and teach tnem the lessons of temperance not alone as to the 
danger of alcohol, but seek to impress upon them the dangers of 
fast living, the improper use of automobiles, the danger of sug- 
gestive moving picture shows and the tendency of lower morals. 
And as parents we should not only teach but should by prope/ 
example lot our lights so shine that others seeing, may know that 
we are spiritually and morally clean. 

We cannot legislate men and women into temperance living. 
True reformation must begin in the heart, this is tha great chal- 
lenge to our churches. 

It cannot be truthfully said that prohibition has failed for it 
has not. With only partial enforcement our country has been 
greatly blessed. We have more home owners, more happy homes, 
healthier children, increased savings accounts and better and more 
contented workers. If the church members of our land would only 
line up behind their pastors for law enforcement, remembering 
that they alone can accomplish but little but backed by the true 
and loyal support of the entire membership can work wonders. 

The officers of the law and the courts are not altogether the 
cause of lack of enforcement. We, as Christians and citizens, 
are too slow in taking sides for the right. We leave it to the 
other fellow, too afraid of hurting some one's feelings and the 
courts feel that we do not want enforcement of the laws. Rest 
assured that if we fail in our duty the responsibility is ours. 

Let us accept the challenge of the forces of evil and give them 
battle. As a church we must raise our standards of life. Our flag 
must not trail in the dust. We must teach and preach only the 
fundametals. Respectfully submitted, 

R. W. VICK.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

The thirteenth annual meeting of the Woman's Missionary 



MINUrKS OF THE SA^ DY KUR I API IS i ASSUCbATu N 



Union, auxiliary to the Sandy Run Association, was held at the 
Cliffside Baptist Church August 25 and 26, 1925. Tiie opening ses- 
sion was held Tuesday evening at eight o clock. The annual ser- 
mon was preached by Dr. Zeno Wall of Goldsboro, substituting tor 
Rev. C. C. Matheney of Alexander, who was ill. 

The meeting on Wednesday was called to order by Mrs. B, M. 
Melton, Supt, of Junior Work, in the absence of tha superintendent. 
MiSs B. B. Moore, who had been called to Kansas City by the iliness 
of her mother. After devotional exercises by Mrs. W. C. Bostic 
of Forest City, the reports from the societies were read, reports 
indicating that progress was being made along most all lines. 

Twenty-one Junior Societies reported. Two new Sunbeam 
Bands were reported, one G. A., one R. A., and three Y. W. A's. 
They have contributed $799.45. Last year there were 29 Junior 
Societies reporting, contributing $1,093.78. 

The reports from the W. M. S. and from the Junior Societies 
show that much is being done, but they also show us that there 
is a vast amount to be done that we are not doing. 

We were fortunate to have with us at this meeting our State 
W. M. U. president, Mrs. W. N. Jones of Raleigh, who made an 
excellent address, using as her subject, "Ye Shall Be My Wit- 
nesses." 

Prof. Huggins of Boiling Springs, made an interesting talk on 
Christian Education, tellin^t something of the Boiling Springs 
school and the great work being done there in giving the boys 
and girls of Sandy Run Association and elsewhere, a real Christian 
training. 

South Mountain Institute, was presented in a unique but im- 
pressive manner, several pupils of different ages singing, as they 
expressed it, their testimony of Christ. Miss Hull made a report 
as to the whereabouts of their former pupils, showing that they 
were witnessing for Christ wherever they may be. 

A rare treat was a talk by Dr. Wall on the subject, "The 
Women of the Cross." 

Dr Chas. H Stevens of Cliffside, presented "The Unique Pro- 
gram for 1925 " We feel sure the women were benefited by this 
and will do more to make our Baptist program a success. 

The following committee reported: 

Committee on Time and Place — Forest City. Time to be de- 
cided later. 

Hospitality — Mrs. W\ C. Bostic expressed the appreciation of 
the W. M. U. for the hospitality of the Cliffside women. 

Miss Carrie Harrill, chairman of Obituary Committee, stated 



8 MINUIES OF IHE SANDY RUN HAPj 1ST AI-SUClA'l ION 



that no deaths had been reported during the year. 

Mrs. Putnam, chairman of Nominating Committee, recommend 
ed the following for officers for next year: Supt., Mrs. W. W. 
Nanney, Cliffside; Asst. Supt, Mrs. F. C. Lovelace, Henrietta; Jr. 
Supt., Mrs. B. M. Melton, Carolecn; Mission Study Supt., Mrs. W. 
C. Bostic, Forest City; Sec. and Treas., Miss Margaret Young, For- 
est City. After the election of these officers the meeting was ad- 
journed, each one hoping that when we meet at Forest City next 
yeai", we will have accomplished far more in the kingdom work.

MRS. W. W. NANNEY. 

Report adopted. 

The Moderator read the report on Religious Literature. 
On motion to adopt, remarks by Rev. W. R. Beach. Re- 
port adopted. 

REPORT ON RELIGIOUS PERIODICALS 

People are largely influence by what they read. Many homes 
are supplied with cheap and valueless literature which does not 
help the family to form the right kind of Christian character. In 
view of the influence of reading upon our people we ought to 
place our religious papers in every home so that our people may 
have information and inspiration concerning the work of the de- 
nomination. Those who are the best informer as to our work are 
the most liberal givers to its support. 

Every family in the Association ought to read the Biblical 
Recorder, and the Home and Foreign Fields. The Recorder tells 
about our work in our own state and often gives information about 
the work of the denomination in all the world. The Home and 
Fields has as its task the giving out of missionary information 
about all the world. 

The Recorder was first published by Thomas Meredith in 1833. 
Since then it has served as organ of the Baptist of N. C. It is 
set for the constructive effort of our people in obeying the com- 
mand of the Master to carry the Gospel to all the world. It seeks 
to aid in bringing in the certain reign of Christ. 

It is surprising that a paper of the Recorder's merit should 
have such a meger support. Three hundred pastors in the state 
are not taking the Recorder. More than 1400 church clerks and 
1450 S. S, Superintendents are not subscribers to it. Let's in- 
crease the circulation of our religious papers. 
Respectfully submitted, 

C. C. MATHENY.

The Committee on Obituaries announced — W. B. Jenk-

H. D. Harrell read the report on the Orphanage. By 
motion to adopt. 

ORPHANAGE REPORT 

Forty years ago the Baptists of North Carolina began the 
blessed work of caring for helpless children. Nearly 3000 have 
felt the touch of the helping hand since that day. There are in 
round numbers 600 children in the institutions; 110 of these are 
in the Kennedy Home ,our eastern branch. At present there are 
83 mothers with 386 children being aided in their own homes — 
nearly a thousand in all. Seven cottages have recently been 
equipped with dining rooms and kitchens, thus completing this 
system for the entire Orphanage. Every cottage is now a com- 
plete home within itself, approaching the normal home as nearly 
as possible. 

The school work ranges from the kindergarten up through the 
high school. The activities of the children through te work hours 
are to be considered a part of the system of training. The cottage 
life, playground, industrial features, church. Sunday school and 
B. Y. P. U. acticities, constitute the effort to work out a well 
rounded life. 

The Orphanage has enjoyed a good year, especially in health. 
The support from the regular collections has fallen below what it 
was a year ago. The treasurer has been compelled to borrow 
money in order to keep going. The drought has caused consider- 
able loss. 

We urge the following suggestions: A once a month collection 
in every Sunday school; a club of Charity and Children in every 
church and Sunday school. Many churches will find it better to 
select a Sunday near Thanksgiving day for this offering. Urge 
that the offering be made equal to one day's work or income, and 
that It be a real thank offering. Such an offering, along with the 
once a month giving, will meet the needs of the Orphanage. 

H. D. HARRILL. 

Remarks by Rev. S. N. Gardner, representing the 
Orphanage. 

The Committee on New Churches report that they find

W. T. Tate read a resolution on Memorial Day. Reso- 
lution adopted. 

RESOLUTIONS CONCERMNG MEMORIAL SERVICES 

Whereas, the churches generally responded to the resolution 
last year asking them to hold their Memorial Services on special 
days, either during the week or at such hours on Sunday as would 
not conflict With the services of other churches; 

And whereas, we wish to re affirm our approval of the spirit 
of these services; 

And whereas, we believe this should be continued and insisted 
upon by the churches: 

Now, Therefore, Be It Reserved, That we must earnestly ask 
all the churches to comply with the resolution of last year and 
r€-affirm this year. 

Second. That we hereby express our appreciation to all the 
churches and the pastors who so heartily co-operated to make this 
the success it was during the past year and ask a full co operation 
for the year to come.

Association in the B. Y. P. U. Also read the report on 
Sunday Schools. 

B. Y. p. U. REPORT 

When one pauses to consider whether or not the B. Y. P. U. 
is a contributing factor of our denominational life, one does not 
hesitate to admit that it is such a factor, in a very positive way. 
There is no other organization within our churches today that is 
rendering to the church itself and to outside world a greater ser- 
vice. The B. Y. P. U. is the "Training Camp" for our future 
workers. The B. Y, P. IT. discovers and develops the talents of 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUR FAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 

its members. There are no "buried talents" where there is a 
wide awake B. Y. P. U. The B. Y. P. U. prepares the future 
"pillars" of the church on whom the responsibility will eventually 
rest, and by whom the important offices will be filled. The B. Y. 
P. U. unquestionably is instilling high ideals of justice, truth and 
morality in young men and women. 

In our own Association the B. Y. P. U.'s are demonstrating their 
ability to bring things to pass. The church need them, they need 
the influence and prestige of the churches. 

Let the "Fathers of Isearel ' support them with their money, 
prayers, and with their wise, sympathetic and loving council and 
they will go far in the promotion and extension of the Kingdom. 

The gain in membership this year has been remarkable. There 
are at present thirty-nine unions. A large per cent of these have 
taken a study course during the year. The total number of awards 
issued to these unions to date is seven hundred and two. 

The Associational Worker is ready to go anywhere at any time 
to be of assistance in any way to this great host of young people. 
Respectfully submitted, 

A. R. WATERS, 
Associational Field Worker. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Sunday School work in the Sandy Run Association has an upward 
forward look. Much has been accomplished, but much still remains 
to be done.. More and more we are impressed with the wonderful 
opportunities that be within the reach of our Sunday Schools. 

In Teacher Training, in spite of many handicaps the work has 
been very pleasing. There are seven Standard Sunday Schools, 
Alexander, Cliffside, Caroleen, Camps Creek, Floyds Creek, High 
Shoals and Holly Surings. There was distributed among the var- 
ious schools, the result of Teacher Training courses, three hundred 
and eight-six diplomas, two hundred and nine book awards. 

While we have every reason to be thankful for what we have 
already accomplished, we should clearly understand that our work 
has but fairly begun. There are still many of our people who 
have no adequate conception of the importance of the educational 
task of the Sunday School, many of our Sunday School officers 
and teachers have had but slight opportunities for preparing them- 
selves for their work. There are hundreds of boys and girls grow- 
ing up among us without any religious training whatsoever. We 
must press forward in our work of leadership training and of 
awakening in the membership of our church and Sunday School 



12 '.^INU.. .-^ UF iHK SAhDV 1 UN HAP i 1ST Ai-SOClA'l ION 



an adequate sense of their responsibility for the religious nurture 
and training of childhood and youth, and we must address our- 
selves with new zeal and intelligence for the task of bringing into 
our Sunday Schools the large number of boys and girls who are 
at present untouched by any positive religious influence.

Associational Field Worker.

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL RELIIEF 

The heroes of battles are given tributes of praise and pensioned 
for service rendered. And may we not forget that the greatest 
heroes of time are those who have fought in the front lines of the 
spiritual warfare for religion and right and the souls of men. 

What have they meant to us? 

How do they appeal to us now? 

The work of the old Ministers Relief Board was turned over 
to the Relief and Annuity Board in Dallas, Texas, in 1918. with 
Dr. William Lunsford as secretary, and this board has charge of 
all funds sent for the relief and support of our aged and disabled 
ministers, their widows and dependents. 

We, therefore, should look well t othis work, an das governments 
and corporations look after their aged servants, so should we. 

Let not corporations lead the churchy but the church lead 
everything in a good work. 

Respectfully, 

M. M. HUNTLEY. 

Report on Education read by F. S. Hall. Pending the 
adoption, remarks by F. S. Hall and Prof. Bruce White. 
Report adopted. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Hardly any tribe or people have ever lived that did not have 
something which passed for religion. We need to make a distinc- 
tion between religion and morality. Morality is the setting up of 
right standards of conduct between one man and another. Re- 
ligion teaches morality, but seeks also to set up the proper rela- 
tions between ourselves and a Higher Power. 

Religion among primitive people was a rather crude thing. 
Oftentimes it amounted to little more than trying to keep away 
evil spirits, or to make the spirits of nature well disposed towards 
human beings. That kind of religion closely bordered on supersti- 
tion. Men once believed in many deities, but now they look up 
to one Supreme Being. Our ideas of Grcd have changed consider- 
ably, too. We prefer to think of Him now not only as a God of 
authority, but as a God 'of love. 

In these days, too. we are emphasizing that sort of religion which 
is concerned with happy and helpful living in this world as well as 
preparing ourselves for the world to come. 



MINUTI'S )F l"H SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 15 



Believing religion always to represent the noblest and highest 
aspirations of human being, well may we say it ought to form a 
part of our education. Therefore. North Carolina Baptists have 
inaugurated a broad and systematic educational program, realizing 
that the li^e of a nation depends upon its schools, the school upon 
its ideals, and the ideals have their highest worth only as they 
are Cristian. 

We are now undertaking to maintain in this state the follow- 
ing denommational institutions: Wake Forest, Meredith, and 
Chowan as standard colleges; Mars Hill and Wingate as standard 
junior colleges; Buies Creek and Boiling Springs as standard high 
schools. The Home Mission Board maintains six high schools. 
These schools have a total of 4.526; 269 of whom are ministerial^ 
students and 105 student volunteers. Their property value is $4,- 
771.46&00. South-wide institutions enrolled 1186 students. Their 
property value is $4,249,881.00. It is for the maintenance of these 
schools, state and South-wide, that our board is laboring. 

Since 1900, Baptist schools in the South have increased from 
65 to 118. students from 11,130 to 38,000, property and endowment 
from seven and a half to forty million. 

The $5,000 000 which we have invested in school property in 
this state seems a large sum, yet it is small in comparison with 
the many millions invested in state schools; and the few thousand 
which we raise annually for our schools is a trifling sum when com- 
pared with the states annual appropriations to her high schools, 
colleges, and universities. In addition to maintaining these insti- 
tutions themselves, we are helping to support about 200 of our 
347 young ministerial and missionary students which are being 
trained in them; on these we expend about $15,000 a year. 

In order to keep our institutions along with those of the state 
in the cultural training that they give, the necessity for maintain- 
ing our denominational schools increase rather than diminish;* 
otherwise, we ean not hope to keep our Baptist girls and boys 
in Baptist schools. 

Whereas, practically nine-tenths of our educated ministers and 
missionaries have gone out from Baptist schools, and the state is 
rapidly enlarging and strengthening her education program and 
compelling all her children to be educated which, of course, means 
a much more intelligent membership in our churches, may we 
resolve to educate a still larger proportion of our ministers and 
leaders; for an education membership will demand an educated 
leadership. 

That we should press forward with a greater degree of deter- 



16 MINUTES OF THh SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

mination and a renewed interest in maintaining our Christian insti- 
tutions of learning is obvious for the following reasons: 

1st. Because of the tendency of some students of science to 
attack the Bible from the standpoint of science, we must train our 
God-fearing men and women to meet them on their own grounds, 
and while pursuing all knowledge in all realms, to relate all 
knowledge and all science to God Almighty. 

2nd. The denominational schools emphasize not only the re- 
ligious spirit but the denominational principles as well, and thus 
they help to enlighten and strengthen their students in respect to 
our distinctive doctrines, and also to enlist them loyally in our 
Baptist enterprises. 

3rd. Baptist schools are making more effort today than ever 
before to so train the young people who come to them that when 
they go back to their home churches they will prove useful and 
efficient members. 

4th. The study of the Bible is required, provision is made for 
training in B. Y. P. U. and Sunday School work, and the Kingdom 
of God and His righteousness is exalted on campus and in class 
room. 

5th. An atmosphere and an environment is created in which 
the spirit of Christ is dominant. It is only in such an atmosphere 
that the growing life of Christianity may be truly developed. 

In short, while learning how to get rich and to enjoy leisure, 
certainly we must see to it that somehow we shall not lose sight 
of the higher values in the training of the human soul; otherwise, 
we may face grave danger of losing the spiritual power and moral 
strength of our nation. 

Respectfully submitted.

ANNUAL REPORT OF BOILING SPRINGS HIGH SCHOOL 

To the Kings Mountain, Sandy Run and Gaston County Baptist 
Associations: 

Your school closed its 18th year on April 22nd, 1925, with its 
usual high sclass commencement exercises, which were held in the 
newly completed and ebautiful auditorium of the new Memorial 
Building. 

The total enrollment for last year was 272, of which 141 were 
boys and 151 girls. These were distributed by classes as follows: 



MINUTKS OF TH SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 17 

Freshman Class, 63; Sophomore, 65; Junior, 68; Senior, 62; and 
Specials, 14. In the graduating class were 62, of these 24 were 
boys and 38 girls. This was the largest graduating class in the 
history of the school, except the previous year when it was only 
two larger. The total number of graduates of the school to date 
is 442. While we point to these with commendable pride, we are 
not forgetful of the hundreds of others who have been equipped 
here for life's real battles. No doubt 3,000 or more students have 
enrolled in this school since its opening. 

Teachers: Three of our most successful teachers. Misses Tay- 
Ibr, Tillery and Foster, resigned at the close of the recent term 
and are succeeded by Mrs. J. D. Huggins, A. B. (Erskine College-; 
Miss Monta J. Clark, graduate in art, (Meredith College), and Miss 
Mary Ella Harris, A. B. (Winthrop College), Our school is fortu- 
nate in having a faculty equalled by few and surpassed by no 
other high school in the state. 

Finances: The Bursar submits the following financial report 
for the fiscal year ending June 30th, 1925, to-wit:

Present Term: The present term opened August 9, 1&25. Thi& 
following brief statement from the principal shows the present 
status: 

I am glad to report that, despite the protracted drought; the 
enrollment of your school is fast approximating that of former 



81 MlNUn S (iF 'IH! SANDY RUN UAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

years and that the health and spirit of the student body is unsur- 
passed. 

The present enrollment by classes is as follows: 

Freshman Class, 45; Sophomore, 41; Junior 48; Senior. 65; and 
Specials, 12. making total enrollment to date 211. The enrollment 
in the special departments are as follows: Bible, 115; Music, 62; 
Home Economics, 20; and Art, 5. There are 21 ministerial students 
and one volunteer. 

Of the number enrolled 108 are boys and 103 girls. Of these 
176 are church members. By counties we have 106 from Cleve- 
land. 30 from Rutherford, and 7 from Gaston. Twelve North Caro- 
lina counties are three states — North Carolina, South Carolina and 
Virginia — are represented. There are 119 boarding students, and 
92 day students. The three B. Y. P. U.'s have an enrollment of 74. 

Memorial Building: The Memorial Building is now entirely 
completed, except painting the wood-work on the interior. This 
is now the administration building, the Principal's office and all 
class rooms being in same. This building is of brick three stories, 
and has cost approximately $65,000.00. 

Central Heating Plant: During the last year we have install 
ed a central heating plant that gives entire satisfaction. It heats 
all of the present buildings and is ample for other buildings, its 
cost was approximately $15,000.00. 

Bond Issue: As reported last year, your school, with the ap- 
proval of the three Associations, issued bonds in the sum of 
$40,000.00, dated as of January 1st, 1924, to cover cost of improve- 
ments herein above enumerated and to make some further im- 
provements. Although the payment of the interest and $32 000.00 
of the principal of these bonds has been guaranteed by the Educa- 
tional Board of the Baptist State Convention, only $13,200.00 of 
these bonds have so far been sold. Regular bond houses prefer 
bonds that are based upon the power of taxation, as in case ot 
municipal bonds. We are pleased, however, to announce that we 
have recently made a contract with Bitting & Co., of St Louis. 
Mo., for the sale of the entire issue on the same terms at which 
they purchased the Meridith and Wingate bonds. As these bonds 
are all of $100 denomination which the purchasers cannot use in 
the open market it becomes necessary to cancel all of these bonds 
and all papers connected with them and to re issue, in their stead, 
bonds of large denominations. This will require a new authorza- 
tion by the Association, which will be submitted as a separte 
proposition. 

Trustees: The terms of the following Trustees expire at this 



MINUT. S OF IH SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 19 

time and their successors will be elected, to-wit: Kings Mountain 
Association, Geo. M. Gold, J. F. Moore, E. B. Hamrick, J. L. Put- 
man and T. A. Stamey; Sandy Run, W. T. Tate, J. J. Edwards, D. 
M. Harrill, G. B. Pruett and W. K. Collins; and Gaston County, 
J. J, Beach and A. U. Stroup. 

Athletics: In keeping the modern idea of a healthy and vigor- 
ous body for an active mind, your school encourages and fosters 
clean and healthful athletics with — and only with — satisfactory 
class work. 

Literary Societies: The four first class literary societies of youY 
school are doing wonderful work in the development of manhood 
and womanhood for leadership in church and state. 

Bible Department: With the Bible as a text-book and stand- 
ing unequivocally for all of its teachings, yours is a Christian 
school with all that that term implies. Special emphasis is placed 
upon the work of this department. Plans are under consideration 
for materially extending this work in the future. 

Ministerial Tuition: The tuition for the ministerial and volun- 
teer students now in attendance is about $1,000.00. As the State 
Educational Board has found it necessary to reduce its appropria- 
tion to our school for current expenses about $1,000.00, we recom- 
mend that the associations take pledges to cover the tuition of 
these students. 

Available Students: In every church in these three associations 
there are boys and girls who should and will be in our school if 
its advantages are properly placed before them — advantages offer- 
ed by no other high school in this territory. All of our churches 
need more active workers. Our pastors greatly need more trained 
helpers to carry on the Master's work. Let our school train them 
for you. 

Ond Needs: We need additional buildings and repairs on those 
we have. We need improvement on our grounds and athletic fields 
and more equipment, but greatest of all we need a stubstantial en- 
dowment. We have only a beginning of $3 800.00. Our socendary 
schools offer the greatest opportunity to men and women of wealth 
to promote the cause of education since so manj'' more finish their 
education in these schools than go to our higher institutions. We 
prayer that the Holy Spirit will lead many of our friends to provide 
liberally for Boiling Springs High School in their donations and 
in their wills. 

In conclusion, your school extends to every member of these 
three Associations, and especially to the pastors, a most cordial 
invitatio nto visit it and to learn, first hand, the calss of work that 



20 MINUTES OF THb SA^DV RUN liAPTlST ASSOCIATION 

it is doing, and the advantages that it offers. 

Respectfully submitted, this the 23rd day of September, A. D., 
1925.

Chairman Board of Trustees.

Church on Wednesday before the second Sunday in 
October. Report adopted. 

Dr. W. A. Ayers read the report on State Missions. 

STATE MISSION REPORT 

The whole program of Jesus is built and maintained upon the 
principle of beginning at Jerusalem and then reaching out to the 
uttermost parts of the earth. Hence, our ability to reach out is 
dependent upon maintaining a strong and adequate base of supply 
at home. "The light that shines farthest shines brightest at home." 
The prophet Isaiah said, long ago, lengthen the cords, yes, all the 
world is calling for that, but how shall it be done? The prophet 
answers, strengthen the stakes. There is no way to safely lengthen 
until we have strengthened. I verily believe that is one thing 
which has brought on our present embarrassment in the work of 



22 MINUII S OF 'IHi SAT DV RLN . APT, ST ASSOCIATION 

Christ. Our strengthening has not kept pace with our legthening. 
Now the State Mission Board is calling us to the imperative task 
of adequately strengthening the home work in order that we may 
reach out with a strong and steady hand to the regions beyond. 
There is wisdom in the plan of Baptist work which throws every- 
thing into a unified program, a co-operative plan. Hence, if one 
phase of the work suffers all the others feel the effect of it. Espec- 
ially is that true if the work at home suffers, if State Missions 
suffer. 

The Board is supporting 145 missionaries. These are minister 
ing to 227 churches which one day will help to send the gospel to 
all the world. The Board is fostering the great work of Brother 
Middleton with the Sunday Schools of the State and the work of 
Brother Morgan with the B. Y. P. U's. From these organizations 
must come, in large measure, the increase in our membership at 
home, and also the workers, the teachers, the preachers, the mis- 
sionaries, for the ongoing of our work, everywhere in the future 
Add to this the work of evangelism in the needy sections, training 
in stewardship, the building of church houses, the inestimable work 
of our women and the healing ministry carried on through our 
hospital at Winston-Salem and remember all these phases of our 
work are fostered and maintained by our State Mission Board. 
Thus we see every interest of the Kingdom of Christ demands that 
we should strengthen the work of our Board. 

W. B. Jenkins read the Report on Foreign Missions. 

ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

To the Sandy Run Association, in session at the Spindale Baptist 
Church, October 7th and 8th: 

The Home Mission Board presented its eightieth annual report 
to the Southern Baptist Convention last May in Memphis,, Ten- 
nessee. Eiglity years of esrvice by this board since its organization 
in 1845 constitute a real romance in Home Missions. Through 
many vicissitudes and steady and unvarying purpose for the salva- 
tion of the lost and the upbuilding of the Kingdom in the Southland, 
the Home Mission Board presents an unbroken history of fidelity 
and spiritual conquest. 

It has been for Southern Baptists the one great constructive, 
CO operative and unifying agency. It has been the foster mother of 
our weaker enterprises, the founder and support of thousands of 
our churches and the forerunner of most all our State Conventions 
and a stimulating factor in their organization and progress. 

The Board in its report presented a significant comparison as

For the last twenty five years the advance in Home Missions 
has been at times remarkable and always continuous and healthy- 
It reached its highest point in 1920, the first year of the 75-Million 
Campaign. Since that time, due to various causes but chiefly to 
the falling off in receipts, the Board has made severe and drastic 
retrenchment in many phases of its work. In some instances such 
severe retrenchment has brought the work to the verge of calamity. 
The Board has had to stand still in the face of countless calls and 
unwanted opportunities. Fields ripe for the harvest have cried out 
for the sickle of the reaper and the Board has not been able to 
thrust laborers sufficient into harvest fields to garner the grain. 

At the recent annual meeting in June, on account of the heavy 
and burdensome debt, the Board had to still further retrench. En- 
largement on the contrary is called for in every direction. 

First. In an increase of forces; second, in better equipment. 

The Board has need for at least fifty capable young women and 
as many men in the field at home and half-dozen young women for 
Cuba. 

In equipment the needs are even greater. For school buildings 
in El Paso, Texas, and Havana, Cuba; the enlargement and better 
equipment of our thirty mountain schools; at least fifty chapels 
in the homeland and Cuba and Panama. The greatest need of the 
Board just now is a mightly increase in financial receipts to lift 
the heavy burden of debt and prepare for the recovery of lost 
ground and to enter new fields that are white unto harvest. 

Notwithstanding the retrenchments made, the Board presents 
a year of wonderful results: 

With 1.077 missionaries, they report 49,219 weeks of labor; 2,381 
churches and stations; 144 087 sermons and addresses; 30,027 addi- 
tions by baptisms; 4,896 by letter; total additions 50,354; 219 
churches constituted; 355 church houses tuilt or improved; 608 
Sunday Schools organized; distributed 12,995 Bibles and Testa- 
ments. 

The Home Mission field was never so great and urgent as now. 
To save our own land is a condition of saving the lost in distant 
lands. Home Missions furnish the great base of supplies for the 
rwork at home and afar. 

Let's remember the Board and all its work in our prayers ami

come with greater liberality in our gifts. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. B. JENKINS, Substitute Committee. 
W. T. Tate read the report on Foreign Missions. 

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

According to the reports that come to us from those who are 
on the battle front the Lord has greatly blessed our work abroad. 
The past year has been a glorious year. Our missionaries bap- 
tized 12,134 people into the membership of our churches on our 
foreign mission fields. This is an achievement that should set our 
hearts aglow with joy. 

Southern Baptists gave $1,556,000 to Foreign Missions during the 
past year. The Board reported to the last Convention a debt of 
$1,250,000. This debt came through no extravagance on the part 
of the Board, In fact the Board has been cutting its appropriations 
severely for the last three years, and is now holding back more 
than one hundred volunteers who are ready to go to the front. 

A sad feature of the work is the fact that some of the mission- 
aries, whose needs in equipment and in new workers to share the 
too heavy burdens which were upon them, have become discouraged 
and some have broken under the strain. Even though sympathetic 
friends have made it possible for the Board to send to the fields 
25 missionaries during the year, the total number of foreign mis- 
sionaries on the fields is but 539, or five less than a year ago.. We 
have lost by death and resignation 30. 

Exclusive of the interest the Board pays on borrowed money, 
ninety six cents out of e\ery dollar that we give for Foreign Mis- 
sions goes directly to the fields. Southern Baptists gave $35,000,- 
eOO for home expenses and baptized 209,676. We gave $1,556,000 
tor Foreign Missions and baptized 12,134. For every one that was 
baptized at home we paid $170.00 and for every one baptized 
abroad we paid $130.00. This within itself should commend the 
work of our Board to every Southern Baptist.

THE BAPTIST CO-OPERATIVE PROGRAM. 

Southern Baptists and North Carolina Baptists, through the 
action of their conventions, are committed to the plan of the Co- 
operative program in financing all of their denominational enter- 
prises. 

According to this plan, all the money contributed by individ- 
uals and churches for the support of all the causes fostered by our 
denominationn is to be sent to the treasurer of the Baptist State 
convention, Walters Durham, Raleigh, who will divide it amorg 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 9 



the different objects according to the proportion agreed upon at 
our last convention, namely: 50 per cent to Statewide objects and 50 
per cent to South-wide and World-wide objects. 

While the Thomasville Orphanage is a vital part of the Co-op- 
erative program, it is supported in the same way it has been from 
the beginning, namely: through the once-a-month offerings from 
the Sunday schools and the Thanksgiving offerings once a yenr, 
which should be sent direct to the Treasurer, F. B. Hamrick, 
Thomasville. 

While we recognize the right of each individual Bar.tist to de*:- 
ignate his gifts to whatever objects he may desire, and this right 
will be respected absolutely by Treasurer Durham, yet w? would 
earnestly recommend that all of our peoT)le give their money un- 
dpsign^ied. This is the fairest and most equitable way to do it. 
The ratio of division among the different objects has been care- 
fully worked out by a group of our representative brethren in 
the light of all the needs of each obiect and has been accented by 
our conventions in session. Each of these different objects is look- 
ing to the Baptist denomination, and to that only, for its support 
as well as for its direction. 

In the light of the foregoing facts, and in the light of the dis- 
tressing needs of all our enterprises, we would recommend that 
this Association commit itself heartily to the plan of the Co-op- 
erative Program. 

We would recommend further that our nastors and other 
leaders put on an intensive camnaign of informinor the people in 
each of our churches about all the objects included in the program, 
and that they see to it that from now on, each member, out to the 
last iiidividual, has an opportunity to make regular offerings to 
the whole program, according to the Spiritual way, 1 Cor. 16:2. 

We would recommend also that our Association accept |15,- 
000.00 as its part of the $600,000 goal, exclusive of the Orphanage, 
accepted by our State Convention as its part of the $9,000,000 goal 
accepted by the Southern. Baptist Convention for 1927. 

We recommend further that the goal accepted by our Associa- 
tion be apportioned among all our churches upon as fair and equi- 
table a basis as possible, and that the churches adopt this goal sug- 
gested or some other that they may agree upon, and then that 
each church make an Every-member-Canvass December 5-12, or 
some other time, preferably during December, and try to under- 
write this objective, which is in no sense an assessment, but mere- 
ly a suggested goal. To the end that the canvass may be made suc- 
cessfully, we would suggest that the most careful preparation be 
made of both canvassers and people^ beginning at least two 
months before the canvass is made.

REPORT ON ORPHANAGE. 

More than 40 years ago Brother Mills began to plead for a 
Baptist Orhpanage but the folks said "No." But today we all are 
proud of the Orphanage it has never 'lost its grip' on the folks. 

Five hundred and eighty-seven were enrolled in the last re- 
port, this includes those at the Kennedy home besides 373 being 
taken care of under the Mothers Aid plan. 

Since the closing of the seventy million campaign the con- 
tributions have fallen off $30,000, less last year than the year 
before, the Treasurer has had to pay interest on money the last 
two years. We recommend three things: First of all Sunday 
schools take monthly collections; second, that all Sunday schools 
take Charity and Children-, on the club plan; third, that all of our 
church members give the price of one day's work or one day's in- 
come on Thanksgiving day. That would run Ihe Orphanage.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT. 

The fourteenth annual meeting of the Woman's Missionary 
Union, Auxiliary to the Sandy Run Association, was held in For- 
est City, August 24 and 25, 1926. 

The opening session was held Tuesday evening at eight o'clock, 
at wlr'ch time Rev. R. N. Childress of Henrietta and Caroleen. 
preached the annual sermon. He brought us an inspiring message 
en "Our Challenger to the Church." 

On Wednesday morning the meeting was called to order by 
the Superintendent Mrs. T. C. Lovelace, who succeeded Mrs. W. 
W. Nanney, now of Rutherfordton, After the devotional exercises, 
roll call of societies, and officers reports, Mrs. Edna R. Harris, 
State Corresponding Secretary, made a splendid address on 
"Launching Out". She urged that we launch out in our prayer life 
and in our personal service work; that we launch out in the depths 
of sin and bring souls to Christ; and that welaunch out so that 
we may have a part in sending Gospel around the world. 

The outstanding event of the afternoon session was a pa- 
geant, "The Radiant Life" by the Y. W. A. and G. A. girls of 
Forest City Baptist church. 

Miss Jefferson represented South Mountain Institute in a short 
but impressive talk. 

The Alexander society won the banner for the greatest p<^r 
cent of increase in membership this year. 

Seventeen societies, as well as a number of junior societies, 
were represented, there being over 200 present. All expressed 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 



their appreciation of the gracious hospitality accorded by the For- 
est City women. 

Since the W. M. U. year has been changed so that it ends with 
the calendar year, it was decided to give a six months report, from 
December 31, 1925 to June 30, 1926, as follows: 

Amount given by W. M. S. to Coop. Program and W. M. U. 
Special $1,293.38. 

Amount given by junior societies to same $215.85. 

Total given by W. M. S. and junior societies $1,509.23. 

There are approximately 700 women and 200 young people in 
the W. M. U. of whom 99 are tithers. 

Two societies have been reorganized and are now doing good 
work, along with the other 18 societies. 

Mrs. B. B. Doggett, chairman of Time and Place committee, 
stated that the next meeting will be held at Bostic the latter part 
of August, 1927. 

Miss Carrie Harrill^ chairman of Obituary Committee, report- 
ed that Mrs. A. B. Jones of Ellenboro has passed away. 

The following officers were elected for the coming year: 

Superintendent, Mrs. T. C. Lovelace, Henrietta; Assistant 
Superintendent, Mrs. R. N. Childress, Caroleen; Junior Superinten- 
dent, Miss Maggie Cole, Boiling Springs Mission Study Superin- 
tendent, Mrs. W. C. Bostic, Forest City; Personal Service and Lit- 
erature Chairman, Mrs. Russell Freeman, Avondale; Secretary 
and Treasurer, Miss Margaret Young, Forest City. 

Our apportionment for this year is $3,500.00. Our aims are to 
strengthen our spiritual lives by more earnest prayer, to win souls 
for Christ, to enlist more women and young people of this associa- 
tion in our W. M. U. work, to carry on organized personal service 
when possible, to encourage Bible and Mission study both of 
which are the source of our missionary information — also to en- 
courage the reading of our religious periodicals, and to urge that 
the doctrine of Christian Stewardship become a part of our lives. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MRS. T. C. LOVELACE, Superintendent. 
MISS MARGARET YOUNG, Secretary.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT. 

At the beginning of the past Associational year part of the 
Sunday schools adopted the Standard of Excellence as a prograift 
of work. That they were wise in so doing is in evidence by the 
splendid work they have been doing through the year. All of them 
are building bigger, better Sunday schools and this has brought 
about bigger and better churches. We have eight new Standard 
schools this year. Fourteen Standard schools in all. 

Our teachers are responding in a great way to Teacher Train- 
ing. This is very encouraging and points the way to even greater 
things for our Sunday Schools. Three hundred and eighty-nine out 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION in 



of the 600 reported in the Minutes have availed themselves of the 
opportunity to train themselves for more efficient service. Hun- 
dreds of pupils have taken the Teacher Training to prepare for 
service as teachers or as pupils indoctrinated and fully in syiru 
pathy with the work of the Sunday school. 

According to information furnished us all of the Sunday 
schools continued through the winter months. Last year there were 
three that went into winter quarters. This year all it seems kept 
going the entire year. 

The number of awards for this year show that the folks are 
deeply interested in the Sunday school program. The number will 
be given in a tabulated report for the year. 

We have grown this year, but the fact that there are some- 
thing like 2,000 yet unreached for our Sunday schools should chal- 
lenge us to greater efforts in their behalf. 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE. 

Temperance is the total abstinence from all things hurtful, 
and the moderate use of all things needful. Therefore it applies 
to more than strong drink. 

We rejoice over what has been accomplished through the eigh- 
teenth amendment, yet we are far from the goal. 

If all officers would discharge their duty and all citizens stand 
by the officers greater things would be accomplished to rid the 
land of this evil. 

Still you can not legislate sobriety into any man, but like a 
remedy for disease it does not cure but holds the disease in check 
until nature affects a cure. 

Still there are other things today that are dragging our people 
down to ruin perhaps far more than strong drink and that is Low 
Morals and Sabbath breaking . Your committee feels that unless 
the churches sound the alarm and turn on the Light of God's word 
on these evils that we are soon going to be so far from the shore 
that the hope of getting back as a Nation will be very slim. 

Therefore we urge all officers of the law and all ministers, 
Sunday School Superintendents and Teachers to sound the alarm 
and faithfully the work assigned them to do and victory will be 
ours in the end. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. M. HUNTLY. 

B. Y. P. U. REPORT. 

The B. Y. P. U. work for the past year has taken on new 
life. We have 50 or an increase of 11 over last year. All of these 



14 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



are doing splendid work. With a little more cooperation there 
would be a B. Y. Pj U. in every church. That was the aim for 
this year. We lacked only 18 of reaching that number. 

The membership has increased considerably over last year. 
The figures are not exact but reports from the Unions leads us 
to believe the increase in membership is about 220 or 240. 

At our Regional Convention in Hendersonville in May the B. 
Y. P. U.'s were asked to adopt as their aims the "Winning of So^ls" 
each member winning one. Five Unions reported that they had 
done this. About 24 were won to Christ by the members of thej;t: 
Union. 

There were 1,142 reached in the B. Y. P. U. Study courses, 
Two thousand two hundred tracts distributed on B. Y. P. U. work. 
A survey of the entire Association reveals the fact that there are 
approximately 600 young people above the Intermediate age un- 
enlisted in the B. Y. P. U. 

Sincerely yours,

REPORT FOR ASSOCIATIONS— 1926. 

The Foreign Mission board of the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion has closed the 81st year of its great service as a clearing hous© 
of Southern Baptists for the dissemination of the gospel in< the 
most destitute parts of the earth. These 81 years have been filled 
with perplexing problems, hard work, and often with discourage- 
ments. But there has been an almost unbroken progress in evan- 
gelistic achievements and expansion of the Kingdom of Christ. The 
last year was the best year in all of the years of the board's his- 
tory and work. 

The following facts should be carefully stored up by pastors 
and messengers to this association, and taken back to tTie whole 
memberhip of their churches: 

1. — ^Things Accomplished Last Year. 

Thirteen thousands two hundred and sixty-nine were haptized 
on our foreign mission fields during the last Southern Baptist 
Convention year, a gain of 1,135 over the previous year. The total 
membership is now 140,488. This membership is organized into 1,- 
215 churches, 557 of which are self-supporting. These churches 
contributed last year $444,258, or nearly $4.00 per member. 

We have on these fields 1,818 Sunday schools with 76,991 schol- 
ars, and 568 women societies with 13,649 members. There are also 
574 young people's societies with a membership of 13,868. Of 
schools of all grades, including kindergarten up to theologial semi- 
naries, we had 920 with a total student body of 36,893 before the 
board's finances made it necessary to discontinue many of these 
schools. It is found that more than 50 per cent of the baptisms re- 
ported for the year was among these students in our Christian 
schools on the foreign fields. 

The medical work of the board for the year consisted of 214,- 
910 treatments administered to 69,583 patients, of which 5,498 
were in-patients. Nine hundred thirty-four of the operations pei%. 
formed by the board's medical staff were major operations. 



16' MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

2. — A Second Fa»ct to be Remembered is the Financial Condition 

Of the Board. 

The board started the year 1925-26, with a heavy debt and 
lends calls from its missionaries for re-enforcement and relief- 
During the year the board received from the Co-operative program 
$1,071,834.16; in designated gifts $240,613.05; and in total gifts 
to the Christmas love offering $811,344.11. The debt was substan- 
tially reduced, but there was left an indebtedness of $727,000. The 
Women of the South have undertaken to contribute as a Christmas 
offering about Christmas time $300,000 toward the further re- 
duction of this debt. 

The board has for moTe than three years denied the missir>-^ 
aries all equipment, such as residences, church buildings, school 
and hospital buildings, etc., anfi has now for some time disco^^ 
tinned appointment of missionaries, although there has been sad 
depletion of the missionary staff by death and resignations. 

The world which the Foreign- Mission board is facing is a 
world in desperate need, but a world ready for Christ, its only 
hope. Will the Baptists of this Association suffer their mission- 
aries and their Foreign Mission board to appeal in vain to them? 
Will they ignore the cries of a lost and ruined world for which 
Christ died and for which we have a sure and only remedy? The 
world n-eeds the gospel, hundreds of young people are ready to 
carry it, and our people have the money to send them, if they 
would only give it. 

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

Our denominational papers have given most hearty commen- 
dation of the Home Mission work for the past year. The board 
made a glorious report to the Southern Baptist Convention in 
Houston, Texas, last May. 

Notwithstanding the receipts were more than 5^5100,000 short 
of those of the previous year, the yearns work was most gratifying. 
Conversions and baptisms were numerous. The Home board for 
years has been recognized as probably the greatest single evange- 
lizing agency in America. Also the report of the board shows a 
most gratifying tendency towards self-support. Mission stations 
and weak churches helped by the board are in turn giving liberally 
to our denominational work — beneficiaries thus becoming bene- 
factors. 

The board is laboring under a heavy debt contracted not from 
plunging but from a reduction in receipts for five years past. Re- 
trenchment of the severest sort has been exercised each year. It 



HTNTJTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 17 

will be almost suicidal for us to enforce further retrenchment in 
this -great work. 

We quote from last annual report of the hoard: "Our country 
Tias become notorious for its disrespect for law, for its numerous 
murders, for its commercialism and materialism. Nothing but the 
mighty power of the Gospel of Christ will save us from this delur:! 
of worldly diversion and material prosperity. These things consti- 
tute a most serious problem which deserves the tliouglitful con- 
ideration of our Convention. Our work abroad will advance apace 
'as we lay the foundations at home.'^ 

We most cordially recommend tliat every church and individ- 
ual in our bounds study this great department of our work and 
pray earnestly and give liberally for its success. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. M. GOLD. 

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL SUPPORT. 

To tlie Sandy Run Association, convened at Walls Baptist 
church, October 6 and 7, 1926. 
Brethren: 

With about 80 per cent of our churches and about 68 per cent 
of our membership in the rural district; I think that we should 
be concerned about the pastors serving in the rural districts. 

I am hoping to see the time when our rural churches will 
catch a vision of the necessity of forming fields, consisting of two, 
tliree, or four churches. This however, to be governed by the 
ftrennrth of the churches, from a numerical and financial stand- 
point. 

After the fields have h^^en formed, polect a suitable location. 
vvd there build your pastor a home. It means infinitely more to be 
n, pastor than just a preacher. Your pastor wants to be in your 
hom*^ and there share your sorrows and your joys with you. Th^ 
outstanding need of our rural churches today is pastoral leader- 
ship. 

"The laborer is worthy of his hire.*' If those to whom he min- 
isters are able to support him, and they are well able, if they will 
but only do it. 

Our young men and young women are not satisfied with the 
present church conditions. They go to our modern school buildings 
with the modern equipment, and to come back to our one room 
church buildings with the same equipment that they have had for 
the past quarter century, and they are not satisfied, and we can- 
not blame them for not being satisfied. They demand the very 
best we have to build up that intellectual and spiritua!! life. One 



Xg MINUTES OF THE SAKTDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

should not be done with the neglect of the other. Therefore, v^e* 
need above all pastors on the fields that will give their entire time- 
to the development of these Christian characters. 

Humbly submitted,

BOILING SPRINGS HIGH SCHOOL. 

To the Kings Mountain, Sandy Run and Gaston County Baptist 

Associations: 

Your school closed its 19th year on April 21st, 1926. The total 
enrollment for last year was two hundred and twenty-four. This 
was 48 less than was the enrollment year before last. At the d:Jte 
of the associational meeting last year, the school had enrolled 211. 
This year (to date), 172. This is 39 less than was the enrollment 
at the same date last year. The loss in enrollment has been con- 
fined entirely to the 8th and 9th grades. The first two years of 
high school work. 

During the 19 years of its history, four-hundred and ninety- 
five young men and women have been graduated and approxi- 
mately five thousand students have enrolled and been benefited by 
its work. 

The four Literary societies have enrolled the entire student 
body. The spirit of the B. Y. P. U. dominates the life of the insti- 
tution. 

There are now 18 ministerial students, seven volunteers and 
119 enrolled in the. Bible department. 

As the state Educational board is so heavily in debt that it is 
not possible for them to materially aid the F'chool, it is earnestly 
hoped that the three associations will take care of the tuition of 
the ministerial students and the volunteer girls. 

Trustees: The terms of the following trustees expire at this 
time and their successor will be elected: To-wit: Kings Mountain: 
Rev. J. W. Suttle, A. E. Bettis, W. W. Washburn, S. R. Walker and 
D. F. Hord. Sandy Run: A. I. Jolley, T. M. Holland, M. M. Greene,

In view of the fact that the enrollment of tTie lower classes is 
being' materially decreased by the phenomenal grov^'th of the state 
high school system and especially due to the fact that there seems 
to be a very great demand in this section for a junior college in 
which the ^aduates from the surrounding high schools may secure 
two years college work, your board passed at its last meeting the 
following resolution: Resolved that this board recommends to the 
associations that this school become a Junior college the next schol- 
astic year.

cluding whites and blacks. Fourteen of this number met for the 
•oryanization of the conventiion. These men retutned to their

homes with a determination to evangelize North Carolina and wc 
will not some of the wonderful avhievements of the convention in 
tlie 97 years of its history. 

The number of churches, 2,300 with membership of 36 4,000. 
There are 2,203 Sbnday schools. The number of pupils enrolled in 
Sunday schools, 312,000. There are 18,000 officers and teachers 
in our Sunday schools. The gain in the enrollment in five year^;, 
91,000. The Baptist Young Peoples' Union the training organiza- 
tion of our church has made wonderful progress for the last fev.- 
years They number 1,850 with membership of 60,000. We have 
seven schools and colleges owned by the convention with a prop- 
erty, including endowments and deducting all indebtedness, of $5.- 
223,570.00. Students enrolled in our schools, 2,900. The numb- v 
preparing for the ministry and mission field, 270. We have 2,281 
Missionary Societies with a membership of 50,000. 

As we look back over the achievements of "the Convention we 
See that we have come a long way, yet, when we look ahead wc 
see a great task facing us. Let us note a few of the many things 
to be accomplished. There are fourteen hundred one-room churcli 
houses in North Carolina, wholly unfitted for the program, of an 
up-to-date church. There are eleven hundred churches making no 
effort at all for the training of the young people. There are four- 
teen hundred churches without any kind of Missionary society. 
There are several county seats without Baptist churches. There 
are many growing industrial centers without Baptist work. There 
are still two hundred thousand Baptists in the state un-enlisted, 
untrained, who have not given a cent to any denominational cause 
in five years. There were over six hundred churches in the state 
that did not give a cent to any denominational object last year. 
The greatest problem of all is winning the many thousands of lost 
Aien and women among us who know not Christ.

REPORT ON OBITUARIES. 

We notice from a study of the letter handed in that during 
the past year we have lost by death 80 of our number. This is 
not so great a number but it reminds us that the Great Creator 
of all things is calling his Own. 

We notice among the lost by death the Hon, J. F. Alexander. 
Th-"c; ?oems a great loss, but when we remember his heart and 
mind provided for the continuance of the great work started 
among our young men and women educationally. We thank God 
for giving him with all the others as long as he did. He is gone 
hut his works live on. 

We notice further that Bethel lost the greatest number, nine. 

While we regret to give up our friends, yet we bow in humble 
submission to His will who doeth all things well. 

We who are still living should do our best (100 per cent.) 
strong for the Kingdom, for our days are short and life is uncer- 
tain and death is sure. 

Come one and all, lets serve God better in our homes, churches, 
state, the South, the Nation and world next year than ever before. 
So when our call comes. We may hear "Well done! Come in and 
accept Eternal life as a reward."

REPORT OF BAPTIST HOSPITALS 

Since the opening of the North Carohna Baptist hospital at 
Winston-Salem, N. C, approximately 6,000 patients have been treat- 
ed. From this number only 14.3 persons out of each one thousana 
admitted have died, the lowest record death rate of any hospital 
in the state. 

The hospital is now caring for 2,000 patients annually and of 
this number 500 are charity patients. 

The charity patients are being cared for by the offerings on 
Mothers Day, a gift from the Duke Foundation and from the pro- 
fits account of the hospital. 

In December this year a new nurses' home, which will accom- 
modate 46 nurses and built at a cost of $45,000.00 will be completed. 

The building is being financed by $10,000.00 set aside when the 
hospital was refinanced, $20,000.00 from the W. M. U. and the re- 
mainder is being borrowed on the hospital's plain note. 

From the beginning the hospital has made its running expenses, 
has paid off a debt of $15,000.00 incurred for equipment and supplies 
and has contributed several thousand dollars annually to charity. 

The hospital has been refinanced, the old bonds retired and new 
bonds running for a longer period of time have been issued so that 
the 4 per cent received from the co-cperative program will meet the 
indebtedness and the interest due nn th bonds. 

Tht plant is among the best, it^ staff of physicians are men of 
recognized skill and ability and every nurse is a Christian. 

Patients have been admitted from every section of the state, 
ircm every walk of life and one has been turned away for the 
lack of funds. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

S. C. GETTY. 

REPORT ON MINISTERIAL RELIEF 

In the 71st Psalm. 9th verse, we find an appeal for old age.. The 
Word of God is our Guide Book into all Truth. 

If we follow its teachings, no part of the Kingdom work will suf- 
fer. The ministerial relief fund was turned over to the relief and 
annuity board in 1918, located in Dallas, Texas, with Dr. Wm. Luns- 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 9 

ford, as secretary. 

This board has been grappling with a great problem ,trying to aid 
old ministers and their widows and dependents in th9 evening of life. 
Last year there were about 1,200 beneficiaries that received around 
rn average of $150 per year, which is a very small amount for 
the greatest work on earth. If this work goes on as it should we must 
increase our gifts to this object. We recommend that all our churches 
give this object a worthy place in our giving and honor the gray 
heads with our substance and our God will supply all our needs.

ASSOCIATIONAL REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS. 

At the Southern Baptist Convention in Louisville, Ky., last May, 
the Home Mission board presented its 82nd annual report. The work- 
ers of the board, independent and co-operative, during the year de- 
livered 109,419 sermons and addresses; conducted 19,966 prayer meet- 
ings; made 171,239 religious visits; added to churches by baptism 
20,686 members; total additions 36,233; won 840 volunteers for Chris- 
tian service; constituted 168 churches; built or improved 278 church 
houses; organized 406 Sunday schools; distributed 11,847 Bibles and 
Testaments, circulated 1,651,204 pages of religious tracts. 

The convention in Louisville instructed the board in laying out 
its work for the new year not to go beyond the receipts of last year 
in its appropriations. This called for drastic retrenchment at the an- 
nual meeting of the board the first of June. In one department, 
that of independent and direct missions, twenty-five missionaries 
were dropped and similar cuts were made in all departments.. 



10 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



The heavy debt on the board must be lifted as soon as possible in 
order that this great task of saving our beloved Southland for Christ 
may be carried on in a way worthy of our people, so numerous and 
well able to accomplish it and for the glory of God. 

The board has a frash supply of tracts and leaflets on all phases 
of its work which can be had without charge on request of the Home 
Mission Board, 804 Wynne-Claughton Building, Atlanta, Georgia. 

Let us pray constantly for the Lord's blessings upon our Home 
Mission Board and its work. This board has been the great unifying, 
coordinating agency of Southern Baptists, and probably more than 
any other agency has been the greatest force for unifying Souchern 
Baptists. Respectfully submitted, 

M. A. ADAMS. 

STATE MISSIONS. 

Since the organization of our Baptist State Convention in Green 
ville, N. C, on March 26, 1830, we note a steady growth in our State 
Mission work. We may attribute the marvelous development of our 
board, and its far reaching activities, to the fact that it is founded 
upon the New Testament principle and the practice and program of 
Christ in beginning in Jerusalem, strengthening the home-base, then 
reaching out to the utmost parts of the earth. 

As we look backward, our hearts are filled with gratitude for the 
blessings of God and for His leadership. As we face the future, we are 
almost staggered at the tremendous challenges to our faith, courage 
and perseverance. 

North Carolina has grown and developed by leaps and bounds in 
material things. Baptists have shared in this material prosperity and 
today we face this serious question: Has our spiritual growth been 
commensurate with our material growth? Let the facts speak for 
themselves. While the little one and two teacher public schools have 
been consolidated and one large efficient school now serves the dis- 
tricts where three to six schools formerly existed, we still have four- 
teen hundred one-room Baptist churches in North Carolina, many of 
which are poorly kept and served by absentee pastors, inadequately 
paid even for such service as they can render under such circum- 
stances. Good roads have brought fever, but larger and more efficient 
schools into reality and today they are functioning in an efficient 
manner. Our state legislature has the authority to make laws to 
which the people must submit, hence our progressive and efficient 
public school system and hard surfaced roads. 

The laws that govern men, relative to Kingdom progress, is en- 
graved on the hearts of the citizens of the Heavenly commonwealth 
in proportion as they submit voluntarily to the engraving process 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 

When we come to that degree of consecration where we say with 
Paul: "For the love of Christ constraineth us" we will seek His will 
to the exclusion of our personal gain and selfish sentiments and tho 
obstacles that now seem mountains will prove to be only mole-hiils. 
which God's people can easily surmount to His glory. 

As we observe the minutes of last year, we note there were iJT< 
fewer baptisms than in 1925, while 599 churches reported not even one 
baptism. Of the 2,325 white Baptist churches in our convention, 419 
of these gave nothing to denominational causes in 1926. Five associa- 
tions have not a single missionary organiatibn of any kind, while 
two associations report one each. 

Our hospital, orphanages, schools and colleges, as well as the 
B. Y. P. U., Sunday school, W. M. U. and evangelistic work are over- 
whelmed with challenging opportunities for kingdom service, but in 
spite of our numerical growth and increased material prosperity, we 
turn an indifferent ear to these clamorous appeals. What will be our 
future attitude? The crying need of the hour for us as Baptists is 
to tarry for power, as Christ told His disciples of old. Tarry, not for 
His promise to be fulfilled, but for power, for until we as His fol- 
lowers are willing to separate ourselves from all sin and indifference, 
until we are willing to rid ourselves from selfish ambition, and beiiig 
emptied of self, ready and waiting to be filled with power, and living 
in a vital and real personal relationship with the Christ of power, 
then we may go forth with the assurance that we may face the chal- 
lenging crisis and come through victorious for Christ and His cause. 
Respectfully submitted, R. N. CHILDRESS.. 

REPORT ON B. Y. P. U. WORK. 

Many things of interest have been accomplished in our associa- 
tion this year. We organized our associational B. Y. P. U. on June 
3rd, in Forest City. Our next meeting was held in Caroleen for com- 
pleting the organization July 9th. Our convention was held in Spin- 
dale Ausfust 24-25 with an attendance of 400. Twenty-four churches 
were represented. 

We observed the week of August 15-20 as study course week. We 
had 27 classes taught and received a total of 372 awards. We closed 
the week with a picnic on Saturday afternoon at Flat Rock v/ith 
250 present. Four hundred and eighty-three awards have been re- 
ceived from other classes taught during the year marking a total of 
855 awards for the year. We have 17 Junior unions an increase of 7 
over last year. Fifteen Intermediate unions, an increase of 14 over last 
year. These unions are in 29 churches, leaving 22 churches without 
a B. Y. P. U. We have nine general organizations, an increase of6. 
Enrollment a year ago 1,291. Present enrollment 1,533 an increase of 
242. Signed E. H. FREEMAN.

REPORT OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES BOILING SPRINGS 
HIGH SCHOOL. 

To the Kings Mountain, Sandy Run and Gaston County Baptist 

Associations: 

In May 4th, 1927, your school closed its 20th year of actual school 
work, but the movement to establish the school was launched three 
years prior to its actual opening. The school closed with its usual high 
class commencement exercises. There were 48 in the graduating class 
which was five smaller than the graduating class of the previous 
year. More than 5,000 students have enrolled since the opening of 
the school and of these 543 have graduated, many of whom later 
completed their education at our leading colleges and universities. 
Your school points with commendable pride to the splendid record 
made by its students, both graduates and undergraduates, as a 
rule, since entering upon life's various callings. Many have distin- 
guished themselves in church and state. 

The total enrollment for last year was 184. This was 40 below 
that of the previous year and that year was 54 below that of the 
year before that. The enrollment to date for present term is 118 which 
is 54 below the enrollment at the time of the associations last year. 
By classes the present enrollment is as follows: Freshman class, 16; 
Sopohomore, 16; Junior, 34; and Senior, 47. It will be observed that 
the loss in enrollment is in the three lower classes.. There are spe- 
cial classes as follows: there are 11 ministerial students and two 
volunteers; 39 in the Bible department, 5 in home economics, and 
30 in music. 

Classified as to residences, there are 92 students from North 
Carolina and 36 from South Carolina. There are fourteen counties in 
North Carolina represented, there being 56 from Cleveland, 12 from 
Rutherford, and 6 from Gaston. 

Because of the continuous decrease in enrollment due to the 
rapid increase of State high schools within the territory of these 
associations, your board found it impossible to finance the school 
under its prior organization. So the faculty was reorganized at the 
beginning of the present term with a smaller number of teachers — 
the minimum number with which the school can now successfully 
function — and yet we are now running at a loss. 

Trustees: The terms of the following members of this board ex- 
pire at this time and their successors must be elected, to-wit: Kings 
Mountain— B. T. Falls, J. H. Quinn, C. B. Wilson, A. D. Spangler, 
and D. J. Keeter. The removal of A. V. Washburn from this associa- 
tion leaves an unexpired term to be filled that terminates in 1929.

Total deficit for year $1,393.40 

This is the first time in the history of our school that we have 
had the very unpleasant duty of reporting a deficit in meeting oper- 
ating expenses. As will be seen from the foregoing financial report, 
we will have a deficit of $1,393.40 if all outstanding notes and ac- 
counts are collected, but it can hardly be anticipated that all will be 
collected. The items not collected will augment the deficit to that 
extent. 

Three things contributed to the deficit for last year, viz: First, 
the decrease in enrollment due to the increasing number of state 
high schools within our territory; second, the failure to receive the 
expected annuity of $2,000 from the Alexander estate, and third, the 
inability of the general board of the State Convention to contribute 
as much to current expenses as we expected. 

As advised a joint meeting of this board, of __the joint committee 
of fifteen and of pastors of three associations held last fall at Boil- 



14 MINUTES OP THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

ing Springs, we are submitting herewith report of the deficit for last 
year, and most earnestly appeal to the three associations to take 
some steps to arrange for meeting the same. We also trust that pro- 
vision will be made, as in other years, to raise a sufficient sum to pay 
the tuition of the ministerial and volunteer students. 

Your board, in its annual report to the association in 1926, re- 
commended that steps be taken to convert your school into a Junior 
latter board. Dr. Charles E. Maddry, its general secretary, was author- 
college. This recommendation was later submitted to the educational 
ized and directed to come to this territory and meet a delegation from 
this board to see if some plan could be evolved that would protect 
the futm*e of our school and promote the best interest of the Centen- 
nial campaign now starting for the relief, of our Baptist schools. At 
the call of Dr. Maddry, the executive committee of this board, to- 
gether with a number of pastors and friends of the school, met Dr. 
board of the Baptist State convention. At a recent meeting of the 
Maddry at the First Baptist church, in Shelby, N. C, on October 3rd, 
1927, at 8 o'clock p. m., when a satisfactory agreement to all present 
was reached which agreement was reduced to writing to be signed 
in behalf of this board and by Dr. Charles E. Maddry. The said pa- 
per-writing hereinafter set forth, has this day been approved, in 
form and substance, by this board and is herewith submitted to the 
association for their approval or rejection. 

"In Be: Boiling Springs High School and General Board, 

Tentative Agreement.

High School and Dr. Chas. E. Maddry, general secretary of the Bap-' 
tist convention, for submission to the Baptist convention at Dur-

rejection : 

1. — All parties hereto recognize that they are both morally and 
legally bound to the banks and bonding companies lending them 
money, not to increase the indebtedness of any institution owned or 
controlled by the convention or to change the status of any such in- 
situation whereby the financial obligations of the convention will or 
would be increased until the bonded indebtedness is paid or greatly 
reduced. Therefore, it is hereby agreed that the General Board will 
pay, and the Trustees of Boiling Springs will accept the same 
amount heretofore agreed upon as current expenses for the years 
1928 and 1929, to-wit: $3,500.00 per year for each calenlar year.

among the Baptists and non -Baptists in the churches and territories 
embraced in the Kings Mountain and Sandy Run Associations for a 
goal not less than $250,000.00 and . the sum thus raised shall be di- 
vided as follows: (1) The debt of $40,000 carried by the Convention 
for Boiling Springs shall be paid and discharged; (2) The remainder 
shall be divided between the, General Board of the State Convention 
and the Trustees of, Boiling Spring High school by the following ra- 
tion, viz: 40 per cent to the convention and 60 per cent to the Trus- 
tees of Boiling Springs High school.

nlnp- with the session of 1928, and may be permitted to raise Boiling 
Springs High School to the full standard of a Junior College begin- 
ning with the session of 1929. 

4. — It is further agreed that all funds coming to Boiling Springs 
High School out of the proposed Centennial campaign after the debt 
of $40 000 herein referred to is paid shall be used as follows : viz : 50 
per cent for permanent improvement and 50 per cent for endowment. 

5. — It is further agreed that with the beginning of the calendar 
year of 1930 new negotiations shall be entered into by and betv/een

It will be noted from the foregoing instrument that the propos- 
ed joint campaign is to be confined to the territory of the Kings 
Mountain and Sandy Run Associations only, for the reason that Dr. 
Maddry desires that the Gaston County Association be left open to be 
worked alone by the General Board in the Centennial Campaign.

REPORT OF WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION. 

The fifteenth annual meeting of the Woman's Missionary Un- 
ion, auxiliary to the Sandy Run Association, was held at Bostic, Au- 



16 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

gust 23, 1927, with an attendance of about 300, representing 27 socie- 
ties. All who attended this meeting seemed to feel that the time was 
indeed well spent, and that it was a joy to be the guests of the 
Bostic women who served a most bountiful and delicious dinner. 

Several topics of interest were discussed during the morning ses- 
sion, but the climax of this session was reached when Miss Alda 
Grayson, returned missionary from China, made a soul-stirring ad- 
dress on her work and the need of Christian worker in China. 

The outstanding event of the afternoon session was an address 
by Miss Dorothy Kellam, State Young People's leader, who used as 
her subject our watchword for the year: "The Master is come and 
calleth for three."— John 11:28. 

Another very interesting feature was a play, "What Shall We Say 
to Our Father" given by the young people of Bostic. 

The banner for the greatest per cent of increase in membership 
was presented to the Bostic society whose membership has more 
than doubled in the past year. 

Our apportionment for the calendar year of 1926 was $3,500.00 
for Cooperative program and W. M. U. specials. Our contribution was 
$3,309.47. 

Our apportionment for 1927 is $3,700.00 and the W. M. U. report 
from January 1, 1927 to October 1, 1927 is as follows: 

Amount given by Woman's Missionary Societies to Cooperative 
program and W. M. U. specials, $2,525.20. 

Amount given by Junior Societies, $883.85. 

Total given by W. M. U., $3,419.05. 

Number of subscribers to Biblical Recorder, 70. 

Number of subscribers to Royal Service, 155. 

Number of subscribers to Home and Foreign Fields, 45. 

Mission Study classes held this year, 4. 

Number of tithers. 102. 

Number of women and young people in W. M. U. work, approxi- 
mately, 1,000. 

The personal service report from Mrs. R. R. Freeman is as fol- 
lows: 

From September 1, 1926 to August 31, 1927: 

Religious services held, 37.

U. Rolllins, Mooresboro; Mrs. Solon Hines, Campbello, S. C; Mrs. J. 
H. Hill, Spindale; and Mrs. Clarence Hames, Cliff side. 

In celebration of the fortieth year of the W. M. V., the members 
all over the South are putting on the Ruby Anniversary Enlistment 
campaign, hoping to enlist 40,000 new members !n the present so- 
cities, to increase the number of societies 40 per cent, and to raise 
four million dollars by the end of 1928. 

Our goal in Sandy Run association is 17 hew societies, either W. 
M. S. or Junior organizations. 

Realizing that our task for this year is a great one, and that 
it is indeed a labor of love, we feel that we can accomplish it through 
earnest prayer and loyal service, and that we shall continue to be 
'Tiaborers together with God." Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) MRS. T. C. LOVELACE. 

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

Your committee is giving a resume of the board's report to the 
convention which met last May. 

Notwithstanding the unrest in foreign countries, the Chinese 
revolution, the distressing debt upon the Board, and the necessary 
decrease in appropriations and forces, God has blessed His cause in 
p11 the fields, for which we give Him our grateful thanks More than 
12,000 have been brought into the churches. 

One hundred and fifty missionaries are in the home-land on 
furlough or have been withdrawn from their fields of labor. The 
board has informed these missioaaries that ualess substantial M- 



IS MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

creases occur in receipts; they would not be returned to their re- 
spective fields. This is causing great suspense to the great men and 
women, and anguish of soul as their fields are suffering in their ab- 
sence, and their hearts yearn to return. 

The greatest year of the board financially was in the year ending- 
May 1921 when the board received $2,529,155.63. For the year ending 
May 1927. the receipts were $1,633,477.93, or a decrease of receipts of 
$895,677.50. The board received $91,620 less this year from the co- 
operative program than it did last year. 

The situation is alarming. One of two things must be done: South- 
ern Baptists much provide a larger income for its foreign mission 
work, or we must, in addition to paring down the efficiency lines and 
abandon altogether some of their mission work. 

The board has informed the brethren that the work cannot be 
maintained on the present income. Shall we forbid the peoples of the 
world from having a full gospel by withholding our gifts? There is 
but one way to meet tlie situation, and that is for our people to pro- 
vide an adequate fund for carrying on this worth-while work. 

Respectfully csubmitted, . ROSCOE C. SMITH.

ORPHAT«AGE REPORT. 

For forty-two years our Orphanage has been making answer to 
'the roH call of institutions set apart to carry o"n the service of Him 
"'who went ahout doing good." The last annual report gives the num- 
ber of children present 614, of these 114 are at the eastern branch 
Icnown as the Kennedy Home. There are 365 cared for with their 
■own xnothrs, mailing in all 979. From the beginning, for shorter or 
longer periods, 3,200 children have felt the helping hand of North 
Carolina Baptists. We now have sixteen cottages at Thomasville and 
four at the Kennedy Home. These are that many households having 
their own dining rooms and kitchens, 

Tb/^ bpal^h. trainiDsr and well balanced education of these children 
•engage the heads, hands an hearts of those who have them in charge. 

The training ranges from the kindergarten tbr'^i^gh hi?h school, 
and from simple useful labor to work combining the skill of head and 
hand. An effort is made to have the children grow up in a Christian 
atmosphere. The pastor, in addition to his regular work teaches the 
Bible and several training coxirses. 

Our children, all our children are our greatest asset, and the only 
hope of the race; but neglected, they becom'E our liability and out 
despair. This is particularly true of the children at the Orphanage. 
There: we open to them the door of hope and turn their young feet 
into safe paths. 

The Orphanage like all our institutions is suffering from debt. 
This can be easily handled if we press the simple program followed 
from the begining, a collection once a month from every Sunday 
school in the association, and a great thank offering, urging on day's 
work or one day's income. 

For the next three years while the one and a half millions are 
being raised for our schools, this is of utmost importance. The orph- 
anage cannot rely on big gifts, and it must not put on high pressure 
methods, hence, as never before, we make the modest, request that 
a once a month collection be taken in ever Sunday school. We p.lso 
urge that a club of Charity and Children be taken by every school 
The paper is $1.00 per single copy, and 60 cents a copy in clubs of 
ten or more to one address. 

In order that the Orphanage may keep i» closer touch with th^ 



n mNCTES^OFTHBr^ANDY'RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATTOPr 



Sunday schools, we recommend the appointment of an Orphanage 
representative by the association. This may be a man or woman: 
whose duty it shall be to keep the management at Thomasville irr. 
toucfi with: the schools in^ the association. A. T. STKOuuMIRE. 

REOPORT OPT StTNDAY SCBTaotS. 

Since the last meeting of our Association our Sunday schools 
have made progress in many ways Ninety-two Sunday school rooms- 
have &een' built inelucfing the manrficent buiTdlng in Forest City, of 
which not only Forest City, but the whole Asociation should be proud 
It was built at a cost of $65,000 and is modern in every respect. It is 
one of the best Sunday school buildin'gs in North Carolina. Spin- 
dale and Haines Memorial churches have added rooms to their 
buildings. Let us hope that many others win follow the worthy ex- 
ample of these schools during the coming year. Twenty-five class 
rooms have been curtained in other churches^ of the association. Fif- 
teen schools were graded during the year. One hundred v^w class- 
es were organized in these schools, and 212 teachers and officers; 
Were enlisted" including the cradle roll and. home department workers. 
Twelve cradle roll departments have been organized, and 12 nome 
departments. Four schools hare installed the six point record system. 
Three hundred and seventy-six teacher training awards have beert 
received. We have 10 standard schools. Fom* less than last year. Let 
us hope these four will qualify before the end of the year along with 
several new ones. While we have fewer Standard schools than we had 
a year ^z6 we have a great many more that are working towards the 
standard than we had at that time, and many of them only lack a 
few points being Standard. 

In the Southern Baptist Convention there are 26^003 churches 
with a membership of 3,708,253 r 2I,77T Sunday schools with an en- 
rollment of 2,724,367; leaving 4,226 churches without Sunday schools. 
In the South we have 73 in Sunday school for erery lOXJ church 
members. ^ 

in North Carolina we have 2,325 white Baptist churches with a 
membership of 375,000; 2,243 of these churches have Sunday schools 
with an enrollment of 232,777. This leaves 82 churches without a 
Sunday school. For every 100 church members in this state we have 
86.4 in Sunday school. 

la the Sal!^ Run association we have 51 churches with a mem- 
bership of 11,321 with 50 Sunday schools with an enrollment of 9,82?, 
leaving one church without a Sunday school. Some of the members of 
this church attend a union Sunday school in a school house near by. 
For every 100 church members we have 86.8 enrolled in Sunday 



MINUTES OP THE SANDY RXTN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 23 



Prom the above we see that North Carolina ranks, above the av- 
erage in the South and cur association ranks a little above the av- 
erage in North Carolina. 

Southern Baptists have the greatest Sunday school program in 
the world, and this program is found in the Standards o! excellence 
lor classes, departments and schoolls. Standard Sunday schools in 
the South reach two and a half times as many, people, pay two and 
a half times as much to benevolences, and win three times as many 
to Christ as the average school; therefore we urgently recommend 
that every Sunday school in this association that has not already 
done so, adopt the standard of excellence as a program of work and 
go to work to attain it 

The Sunday School board is p-ublishing a magazine, "The Sun- 
day School Builder," to assist pastors, superintendents and general 
officers in carrying out this program, so we recommend that every 
School order enough copies of this magazine for the officers of the 
school along with the other literature. 

The Bible is a missionary book from cover to cover, and the busi- 
ness of the Sunday school is to teach, interpret, apply and make ef- 
""■■^•■—^ this r-r.-ricni:"/ mcscage. To do this teachers and officers 
should know about our great missionary achievements, needs, oppor- 
tunities, and difficulties. We have a missionary magazine, home and 
foreign fields, which brings all this information month by month. 
The Sunday School board has now made it possible for this maga- 
zine to be ordered just as any other supplies, and paid for quarterly 
by the school. We urgently recommend that every Sunday schooF in 
this association place its order with the Sunday School board for a 
runply of this magazine to be distributed monthly to the' teachers 
and officers. W. C. LYNCH.

ORPHANAGE REPORT . 

This resembles a report on a home, only it is many times mul- 
tiplied. 

The last annual report gave 618 children present; of these 117 
were at the Kennedy Home. Viih 6^ mothers there weit aided 
282 childrsn, making in all 900 ch'kiren cared for. 

On account of shortage of funds fewer were cared for by mother's 
aid than a year ago. 

Some six or eight hundred were turned away for lack of room, 
and no more could be helped by mother's aid for lack of funds. 

For 43 years this stream of children has been coming in and 
passing on out into life with added preparation for the struggle 
there. That thy ebe fitted and fortified for real living is the matter 
of chief concern. Our infirmary with a trained nurse and skilled 
physicians, who com.e at a moment's call, look after the health; our 
housekeeping, form, dairj", printing office and other forms of in- 



MLsa^TES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 



dustry, give skill to their hands; a standard school looks after 
their minds; and the religious life led by Pastor' E. N. Gardner, also 
a teacher of the Bible, is not neglected. 

There is a painful discrepancy between the number of pressing 
applications for help and the contributions coming in. So far we 
are not as badly in debt as we were a year ago at this time, but 
contribct!ons are far below our expenditures. 

Again every Baptist Sunday school is asked to m-ake a contri- 
bution once a month. In some schools single classes support a 
child. Remember the Thanksgiving offering measured by one 
day's work or income as an expression of gratitude, and thus en- 
able the Orphanage to do its work. We would encourage a club 
of Charity and Children in every school, 60 cents a copy in clubs 
of 10 or more to one address. It is one dollar to a single sub- 
scriber. Yve ask that a special Orphanage representative be ap- 
pointed to aid the institution in keeping in touch with the Sunday 
school.

R. N. Childress read the report on Baptist Hospital. 

REPORT OF OUR BAPTIST HOSPITAL. 

(By R. N. Childress.) 

Our Baptist Hospital, the youngest, child of the Convention, is 
located m tne corpOTate limits of Winsior.-Salem, N. C, on ten 
acres oi the m.ost valuable land around Winston, and as pretty a 
spot as can be found anywhere. There are two buildings, the Hos- 
pital plant and the nurses' home. There is an indebtedness of 
$125,000 on the Hospital, which is being retired annually. 

The Nurses' Home, which was occupied for the first time last 
December, cost about $43,000. When the Nurses* Home was ccm.- 
pleted 21 beds which the nurses had occupied in the hospital were 
released for additional patients. 

Last year 2,150 patients w-ere treated at our Hospital. More 
than 500 w-ere charity patients. Of the total number, 2,150 treated, 
only 26 d^ed, giving our Hospital the distinction of having the 
lowest dratij rate in any hospital in our state. The death rate is 
just a little mi ore than a third of the death rate in the average 
hospital in North Carolina. This significant fact shows very con- 
clusively that the smile of approval of the Great Physician is 
upon our denomination as we go forth to do the work which He 
began when He was on the earth, to enable the lame to walk, the 
deaf to hear, and the poor to have the gospel preached to them. 

Our Hospital is not operated on a commercial basis, but on the 
br.sis cf ser'.ice to mankind A vast amount of charity work is 
done each year. Between 500 and 600 charity patients were 
treated there last year, at a cost of $27,250. Each year since 
since its charity work has increased and will most likelv continue 



12 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



as the years pass. The cost of charity work for the present year 
is $30,0000. The source of income for all charity work is the 
Mother's Day ofrering and the gift from the Duke Endowment, 
and cash from the hospital income, which amount should be left 
for needed equipment. 

If we believe in tht ministry of healing and are burdened with 
the responsibility of our sick brethren and sisters who are unable 
to pay for treatment, and for this reason we are often denied 
what we could give through our Hospital, w^e should make a sac- 
rificial offering in each church in the Sandy Run Association on 
each Mother's Day for this most worthy cause. 

This request comes from the Superintendent of cur Baptist Hos- 
pital, Dr. G. T. Lumpkin: 'Tray for us, send us your pay patients, 
bring us your charity patients, and with the help of the Great 
Physician we will send them, back rejoicing in the blessing of re- 
newed health."

REPORT BOARD TRUSTEES BOILING SPRINGS HIGH 

SCHOOL. ' 

To the Kings Mountain, Sandj' Run and. Gaston County Baptist 
Associations: 
On May 2nd., 1928. your school ck)sed its twenty-first year of 
actual work. Those have, been strenuous years, marked by sacri- 
ficial devotion and unrelenting efforts on the part of faithful 
teachers and loyal friends of the institution, but in those years 
v/e have made history for Christian education in this section, where 
the Baptist cause so largely predominate.^. We point with pride 
to the achievem.ents of the High School as a justification of the 
wisdom of these Association? in entering the field of Christian 
education. More than 5,000 students have enrolled here since the 
opening of the school, and 500 have graduated, many of whom 
later graduated from higher institutions of learning. As a rule, 
those are making good in every line of human activity in ctiurch 
and state. 

The total er.rollment of the school for the year 1927-28 was 138, 
a decrease from that of the previous year, but no greater than 
was anticipated in vievv- of the rapid invasion of our territory by 
the state high schools. There were 47 in the graduating class, 
only one short of the number the previous year, while there was 
r. marked decrease in tne two first and second year classes. This 
unmistakably m.arks the drift tow^ard higher education.

This is the second year in which we have had the unpleasant 
duty of reporting a deficit, but it is slightly belov/ that of last 
year. This deficit is contingent upon our collecting in full balance 
booked for the year. Some arrangement should be mde at this 
meeting of the Association to discharge this deficit, and to pro- 
vide for the tuition of the ministerial students, as in other years. 
ROILING SPRINGS JUNIOR COLLEGE. 

In the annual reports of 1926 and 1927 of this Board we urged 
the pressing demand for a Junior College at Boiling Springs. In 
our last report we presented an agreement which had been tenta- 
tively adoped by this board and the General Secretary of the Con- 
vention, subject to the ratification of the Convention at its meeting 
last November. That agreement, with a few slight amendments, 
was unanimously adopted by the Convention. Acordingly, a join 
campaign was launched and vigorously prosecuted during the sum- 
m.er within the Kings Mounta^'n and Sandy Run Associations to 
reach a goal of §250,000 for the Centennial Fund and to make 
Boiling Springs High School a Junior College. While a little less ■ 
than half the goal was reached, it v/as a marked success and fully 
demonstrated the deep interest of our people in the movemicnt for 
the college. Out of the funds coming from these two Associations 
will first be paid the bonded indebtedness of ?40,000 against our 
school, and the reminder will be divided between College ana' the 
Centennial Fund on the basis of 60 per cent to the former and 
40 per cent to the latter. iHalf the sum. going to the College will 
be applied to equipment and the remainder to the endowment. It 
is earnestly hoped that before the termination of the Centennial 
Campaign in 1930 that we shall reach our goal of $250,000. 

So impressed were the officers of the Baptist State Convention 
with the success achieved in the campaign and loyalty of our peo- 
ple to our School that your Board was authorized, at the beginningr

first year of college work. The action of the officers will be sub-

ingly, the Junior College was launched and is now a reality. The 
High School, for the present, will be continued. A second year of 
college work will be added next year. No effort will be spared in 
making ours a standard Junior College. Only such persons have 
peen employed for teachers in the College Department as will 
meet this requirement. 

Although late in announcing definite plans for the College De- 
partment, we now have 68 college students, with others still com- 
ing. This is in excess of the minimum requirement for standard- 
ization. The dean has submitted to the Board the following data 
relative to present term: High School — by classes — Freshmen 
class, 20; Sophomore, 30; Junior, 26, and Senior, 41. Total enroll- 
metn to date, all departments, 187. Classified by associations, we 
have from the Kings Mountain 91, Sandy Run 33, and Gaston 
county 12. There are 51 from territory outside these Associations. 
26 peing from South Carolina. Six SLates — North Carolina, South 
Carolina, Virginia, Florida. Alabama and ?Jasschuetts — are rep- 
resented with ten counties in this state. By denominations we 
have 173 Baptist, five Methodists, one A. R. P. and one Catholic. 
Bible Department has 123. 

To meet the requirements for standardization certain equip- 
ment has been and is being added. It is the purpose of the Board 
to meet this expense, ultimately, from the fund? pledged in the 
recent campaign, but this fund Mill not be available for some tim.e 
to conie. Ke.ic^. this Loard is confronted with the necessity cf 
borrov,-ing a sum sufficient to meet present needs for improvements 
and equipment, v/hich will be not less than S5.000. We, therefore, 
request authorization from the Association to negotiate a loan, 
or loans, for such sum, or so much thereof as may be found neces- 
sary, for the purpose named. 

WHEREAS, it is apparent, as much as we regret it, that our 
beloved brethren and co-workers on this Board, who are members 
of the Gaston County Association, feel em.barrassed to take a 
part in our Board meetings since they were not included in the 
recent campaign in the other two Associations in behalf of our 
Junior College movement; and. whereas, we believe the pastors 
and churches of the Gaston County A^ssociation would now appre- 
ciate an opportunity to extend financial aid to our Junior College, 
which it greatly needs; therefore. 

This Board hereby memoralizes the Gaston County Associa- 
tion to launch at this session movement to raise such sum for 
permanent improvement and equipment of Boiling Springs Junior 
College as that body may deem wise and proper. This fund would 
meet the pressing needs for these purposes, and. at some time, 
enable the membership of that Association to know and fee] that 
they have had a worthy and definite part in the establishment and 
maintenance of a Christian college which w.i] mean evervthini: to

of our University, and of the Southwestern Seminary. A young 
man with striking personality, a profound scholar, an exponent 
of Christian schools, we believe we have in Dr. Dav's a president 
worthy of the highest esteem of our people and whom we shall

HOME MISSION REPORT TO TPZE 3:jTH SESSION OF TEE 

J : SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION. 

October 11-12. 192S. 

The HoniG Slission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention 
made its S3rd annual report to the Convention in Chattanooga 
lest May. Notwithstanding serious falling- ctT in receipt? of the 
erai years past and necessary relrenchment in the work of the 
Board, the year's ivork was most encouraging. The faithful sow- 
ing of former years brought a glciious harvest of souls won to 
Christ. The field of the Home M'ssion Board includes all th? 
territory in thr bounds of the Southern Baptist Convention, v.-iih 
Cuba and the Canal Zone. 

The Board's work has been thoroughly departmentized and sys- 
temized and operated under the following departments: Co-opera- 
tive Missions, Independent and Direct Missions, Evangelism, 
Mountain Mission Schools. Cuba and Panama, Church Extens'.on 
and the Tuberculosis Sanatorium, El Paso, Texas. 

A summary of the Board's work for the past ten years shows 
the following gratifying results: Br.ptism.s, S44, 9G6; churches con- 
stituted. 1.905;; Sunday Schools organized. 0,128: houses of Vv-or- 
ship buTt, 4,184. These figures shouid call forth the gratitude 
of all Southern Baptists and she aid ct.iist their loyalty and prayer- 
ful support. 

THE PRESENT CRISIS. 
'A serious and dist]-essing situation has been thrust not only 



MINUTE ; OP r.lE S\N 'V K'.:X BAPTi-T A> OCIATION 1' 

upon the Home Board, but upon Southern Baptists, by the defal- 
cation of Treasurer C. S. Carnes. The duly appointed agencies 
have taken the matter in hand, and we should all pray that they 
may be ^iven Divine Wisdom in handling this difficult situation. 

■ In the meanwhile, let our people withhold all criticism, pray 
more earnestly, give more loyally, follow the plans deemed best 
by our leaders, remembering that the great Baptist name har- 
nevcr trailed in the dust, and by the grace of God and the loyaalty 
of His people we will now save the name from the suspicion of 
dishonor. . , ; , . ■:': / 

A VALUABLE SUGGESTION 

The Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention 
met in Nashville, Tenn., on October 3rd and decided, after due and 
prayerful consideration, that they would call on Southern Baptists 
to make immediate spec'al offerings to meet the emergency causec: 
by the defalcation of the Treasurer. It has been stated the 25 
cents from each Southern Baptist would meet the situation and 
save the denomination's honor. What loyal Baptist would not 
give that amount and more to save our good name? 
REI*ORT ON STATE MISSIONS. 

One of the strongest traits of human nature is love for the 
homeland. North Carolina, rich in sentiment and history, is our 
homeland, end the ri!rpo.~-.e of Baptist State Mission work is to 
enthrone Christ in the "Old North State." 

The great ccm.mission of Jesus to "go into all the world"' un- 
questionably 'ncludes the territory immediately surrounding 'ch? 
ones to whom the commxand is given. State Missions is part of 
the program of the Great Commission. It is the "Judea"' of the 
Command of Jesus. 

State Mission work is more important than many are av.-are. 
Foreign missionaries and their support are the fruit? of State 
Mission work. Neglect the home base and the sun:?!ri; for the 
battlefront w'll cease. When State Missions succeed, all ether 
causes succeed. When 5nate T^Iissions fail, all else fails. It is 
the great fund'^men'^al of the program of world missions. Only 
as the light of the Grspel shines brighter here, will it become 
br'ght enough lo shine ur.to the titrermosi. As we win the victory 
here, so will our rrms be strengthened and lengthened to win the 
victory yonder. State Missions is our invested capital, our base 
of supplies. "Sar^'^ri'^" and "tht u rermost parts" v.-ere not in- 
tended to eclipse "Jud^r" and 'J^rusaiem' in the saving concern 
and effort of the disciples of our Lord. State Missions is primary 
and basal. Strengthen the cause of State I\lissions and you will 
strengthen the vvhole cruse of Christ. 

The record of our organized work in North Carolina reads like 
a fairy story. The date is not known when the first Baptist came 
to the state. However, they were found in Chowan countv in the 



20 MINUTES (^^F CHE SANDY KUN BAPTIST ASSOCiATlOX 



first part of the -eiphteenth century, and the f.rstt Baptist churcl) 
was constituted at Shiloh. in Camden county, in 1727. The Bap- 
t'st State Convention was orgranized at Greenville, March, 1830. 

As the years- passed the Baptists left a migrhty impress on th? 
"Old North State." The story of their achievement reads like a 
romance. It is a story of victory after victory for our pioneer 
leaders. There is scarcely a big city chuich in the state today 
that was not planted or fostered by our State Mission Board, 
back in those early days. This is also true with many of the town 
and country churches. The fact that the churches that were 
planted and fostered by the State Mission Board are nov.- giving 
two-thirds of all that is being given to the general work of the 
denomination is irrefutable testimony of the value nd importance 
of the work of State Missions. Napoleon said: ''Conquest made 
!i:c what 1 am, and conquest must sustain me."' North Carolina 
Taptists. with their 98 years of glorious achievement in the work 
of State Mission.^, might say the same thing. 

Eaptir.ts have increased in numbers from some 15,000 in 1830, 
to 385.000 in 1028. In addir'cn there are 250.000 negro Baptists 
^i?-' North Carolina. Nearly half of the church members in the 
statt are Baptist, tlierefore there is a great responsibility on the 
Baptists for the moral and religicus uplift of North Carolina and 
the spread of the Gospel in all the world. Alas, the sad part of 
"■•is that 1.4;;3 out of the 2.ZCP- churches did not give a cent for 
the spread of the Gospel front January 1 to July 1, 1928. Yet 
they are caP^ing themselves Missionary Eapt'st Churches. 

As to ctir materia] wealth. North Carolina has forged to the 
front. She ranks seventh in the total value of agricultural crops. 
^is to her industry, she ranks fcremost in the manufacture cf 
tobacco ?.v.6 cotton goods, and nfth in the hydro-electric industry. 
With the coming of the Enka industry and other indusn'ies to 
Ashvilie the material vx-ealth of the state will be increased. 

With the rapid changes of our rural, industrial center and city 
life, many -rc-blems ate confronting us. 

1. Many of the I'ural churches have died w'thin the last iVv\- 
v-cars oth^^rs are merely existing. The churches have ^.vi ■ ■: nt 
pace with modern improvements and progress. These -■ eiric 
churches n.eed tc be aided. Tvvo years ago it was reported tht-r^ 
are 1,10C on'--^'oom. church he uses in North Carolina, wholly un- 
fitted fcr +he best W(rk- no missionary society: and 1,100 cf these 
mr:kc no i"^ort to i:.rov"de any ttaining for the young people. 
Eighty per cent cf our Baptists live out in the open country. 
Thtrefcre one can i:ec the nece3.;i;y of {"taching and developing 
the people ct our i-ural s. -:ion . in many in-ta:,ces it would be 
wisf- tc combine several ctunt]y churches and secure a tra ned, 
resident pastor. In this the ^r^tate Mission Board eould render 
very vaiua".>lt assistance. 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST. ASSOCIATION 21 

2. The industrial situation throughout the Piedmont especially 
is as challenging as it is imperative to this section. A contlnucus 
stream of industries from New England is pouring in, bringing 
the same problem? and peril? that have blighted the religious 
life of the north and the east. V/e must meet this situation a.t 
once or suffer irreparable loss. A number of towns in this sec- 
tion are now vainly appealing to our Board for help in this day 
cf crisis. Surely our primary obligation in the field of missions 
is to give the Gospel to those who live within our own borders. 

3. Another great mission field and opportunity is the unchurched 
sections of our cities. These sections are being fed by the fresh 
young blood of our towns and country places. These are being 
threatened by the unleashed forces of darkness, because of inade- 
quate Gospel privileges and forced to stem the dark tides. 

4. State Missions do pioneer work. State Missions aid often 
help conserve what has been gained. A mission church, though 
vreak, affords a nucleus to which will gather Baptists that move 
inio the community, and thus save them from drifting into other 
communions. ''We must save the neglected of today if we would 
save tomorrow's day.'' 

Through the department of missions 134 churches are being 
aided this year in paying the salaries of 87 pastors. Last year 
2,719 v.-ere received by the.se churches, 1,456 were received by 
baptism. These churches will some day help send missionaries 
to the whole world. The \\ . M. U. department reports 2,047 active 
missionary societies, of v/hich 708 were organized last year. Con- 
tributions were S278,08o, far beyond the goal set. The Sunday 
school department reports 2,258 Baptist Sunday schools, with 
membership of 334,2oo, an increase of over 10,000 over previous 
year. The B. Y. P. U. department reports mem.bership of 44,344. 
The three white and one negro evangelists are doing commend- 
able w-crl:. The Board employs four student workers in four of 
our state schools, 'the Preacher's School, conducted for ten days 
at Meredith College, enrolled 325 preachers and their wives, and 
is one of the most helpful agencies of our work. The Baptist Book 
Shop is another most effective agency. 

Vvhile Aorth Carolina Baptists during the past 98 years of their 
organization have made wonderful progress in the:r efforts to 
imprint the life and ideals .of Christ on the state, they still have 
before them a vast unfinished task. 

Let us plan, w^ork and pray for two outstanding needs in our 
dcncm national life: 

FIRST. The greatest need is for a genuine revival of religion 
in all cur 2,cOS churches. There are 500,000 people in North Caro- 
lina who are unsaved; there are 200,000 of oui church members 
in name only. There -are QM Baptist churches in North Carolina 
that d-d not rccort a single baDtism last vear. 



22 MINUTE^. OF THE SANDY RU\ BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

SECOND. There is another need almost as acute. There is a 
need for a revival of New Testament Stewardship among our 
church members. Three hundred and ninety-five of our churches 
did not report a penny last year. It is estimated that not over 
one-third of our 383.242 members had no part in the work of the 
denomination. Our boards and denominational agencies are in 
debt and distressed for funds because our people have withheld 
from God that which belongs to Him, and consumed it on them- 
selves. We should co-operate with the Associations and the 
churches in the teaching and training of the evangelized. 

When the Lord shall call us to give an account of our steward- 
ship may we be able to hear Him say: "Well done." 

Respectfully submitted, ., ■, 

PAUL STEWART. 
REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS— 1928. 

The outstanding even in the history of the Foreign Mission 
Board during the lasi year was the death of Dr. James Franklin 
Love, its devoted Corresponding Secretary. He gave fourteen 
years to the service of the board. By his wise counsel in con- 
ference on the fields he brought reassurance and renewed devotion 
to the missionaries. His zeal for the spread of the Gospel was 
so unflagging that he passed on vrithout stint of time and physical 
strength until he lay exhausted and prone in death. 

THE DEBT. 

The Board has been long depressed by debt, but during the last 
year substantial progress has been made towards reducing this 
great incumbrance. The debt on January 1, 1928, was $1,145,729. 
By iMay 1st it was reduced to §1,065,791.18. This shows a reduc- 
tion in four months of $79,938.56. The following definite plan of 
reduction has been adopted: 

1. Ten per cent wnll be laken monthly from its co-operative 
program and applied to the debt. 

22. Certain propcriies in the home and in the fore'gn lands be- 
longing to the board which cannot now be developed for the work 
of the Board will be sold. 

3. Special gifts by friends for the reduction of the debt, already 
substantial sums have been received for the purpose. 
GOOD REPORTS FROM ABROAD. 

A year ago the situation in China was bad. While all has not 
cleared away yet, reports indicate that opposition to Christian 
work is rapidly diminishing. One of the most cheering things is 
that the native Christians have stood the grillng test well. In 
many instances Chinese pastors have been heroic. il^Iany mis- 
sionaries have returned. The Board has 28 main stations. Mis- 
sionaries have returned and are living in 24 of these. 

One of the most interesting things of the year occurred in Rou- 
mania. On February 1st the Roumanian government granted Bap- 



MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 23 



tists full liberty of teaching, and treatment on equal footing with 
all Roumanian citizens. The infamous treatment and persecutidn 
of our brethren in Roumania has been one of the great scandals 
of modern times. The shame of it spread throughout the world. 
The Baptist brotherhood was aroused and made its indignation 
felt. The signatures of these poured in from all corners of the 
world, so that if placed on fo.olscap paper and placed end to end 
would stretch a mile and a quarter. 

Our mission in Africa has grown rapidly. It now ranks third 
in number of members of our churches, and last year stood third 
in the number of baptisms. There is almost a mass movement in 
certain sections toward Christianity. The native Baptist churches 
are doing an inspiring type of work in evangelization of their 
people. 

A marvelous response has been made to the messages of Dr. 
John R. Sampey as he has preached in Brazil and other Latin 
American lands. In spite of the fact that he had to speak through 
an interpreter, large numbers have accepted Christ. In Brazil 
alone there were reported last year 2.925 baptisms. " , 

THE STORY IN FIGURES. 

There are connected vv'ith our work abroad 1,275 churches, 675 
of which ((more than half) are self-supporting, and t>59 of Vv^hich 
own their own houses of worship. Their grand total of member- 
ship reaches 146,072. They gave last year an average of S3. 20 per 
member. 

That the constituency is much larger than the membership is 
shown by several facts. There are more than twice as many out- 
staticns (2.861) as there are churches. In these multitudes hear 
the Gosr;el. There were in our 1,538 Sunday schools 75,118 schol- 
ars, and in our 587 regular schools there were 26,244 students. 
Our missionary physicians treated 48.464 patients. These great 
numbers who are brought into contact with ihe Gospel through 
the m.eans here described constitute a vast and sym.pathetic audi- 
ence to the evangel of our Gospel message. 

There were 12,542 baptisms last year. Undoubtedly the number 
actually baptized was larger than this, tui on account of disturbed 
conditions in several fields it was not possible to gather full re- 
ports. Even so, the number reported baptized was 457 more than 
the number reported the previous year. 

Fo: all these evidcncot cf Divine blessing upon our work, we 
thank God and take courage. 

A. C. LOVELACE. 
REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON SUNDAY SCHOOL 
AND B. Y. P. U. 

Your special committee on B. Y. P. U. and Sunday School 
work malie the follov^'-ing recommendations: 

1. That we discontinue a paid field worker. 



14 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BATTJST ASSOCIATION 



2. That we desire to go on record as expressing our gratitude 
to Brother W. C. Lynch, our retired fiel dworker, for hsi untiring 
and effective sevice rendered our churches during his two years 

A'ith us. 

3. That we heartily commend the Sandy Run Sunday Schoo] 
Association for the splendid work it has done since its organiza- 
tion and pledge our loyal support as an association in the future. 
We also wish to call the attention of each Sunday school to the 
fact that it is organized to help build more efficient Sunday 
schools and serve as a clearing house for our m.any Sunday 
school problems. 

4. We further suggest that each church put on at least two 
training schools for B. Y. P. U. and Sunday school workers each 
year. Assistance in securing teachers for classes or training 
schools may be l^ad by applying to the group superintendents of 
the Sunday School Association. We also request that pastors 
and others w^ho will volunteer their services as teachers report to 
the group superintendents. 

5. We recommend that this association put. on an associational 
wide enlargement campaign under the leadership of our State 
Sunday School Secretary, Mr. Perry Morgan, during the coming 
year. The time and plans to be worked out by our Executive 
Committee. 

We Vv^sh to ask foi- an expression from niessengers present on 
this matter.

THE DAPTIST CO-OPERATIVE PROGRAM 

The Genera] Board of the Baptist State Convention at its rejrular 
Jnne mectin.r: adopted a? the goal for North Carolina Baptists to 
raise in 1929 for all the objects included in the Co-operative 
Program, except the Orphanage, $700,000, which is $100,000 more 
than the goal adopted for this year. This increased goal was 
suggested 'n view of the fact that our State will not go into the 
special debt-paying campaign at Christmas as authorized by the 
last Southern Baptist Convention, but in lieu of that we art 
hoping to raise in thank offerings -at this season a hundred thou- 
sand dolla;^s extra for the v/hole Co-operatve Program. 

Each dollar sent Walters Durham, Treasurer, PLaleigh, that is 
undesignated is divided among the six objects fostered by our 
denomination as follows: 

State M'ssions 23 cents !• 

Baptist Schools 23 cents 

Baptist Hospital 4 cents 

50 cents - ^ . 

Foreign Missions 25 cents 

Kom.e Missions HV-i cents " 

Theological Seminar.es 8^/4 cents • - 

Ministers' Relief 4^12 cents -. 

New Orleans FIo.spitaj 1 cent ,■..'' 



50 cents 
In co-operation with the other A^ssociations in the State we 
recommend that this Association accept as its part of the State's 
goal 8115.00, which is based on the i egular ratio of increase in 
the States goal, around 40 per cent in advance of what we gave 
last year. We reccnimend that this amount be rivided among the 
churches of the Association upon as equitable and fair bas:s as 
possible by the Executive Commictee of the Association, or by 
a special committee appointed for the purpose; that each church 
earnestly endeavor to rais its objective by m.aking a thorough 
every-member canvass Di^cember 2-9, the Southwide date suggest- 
ed, or at such other time.' as each church may elect, or to raise it 
by some other miethod adopted by the church. 

Wt would recom.m:nd further that the most thorough prepara- 
tion be miade several weeks in advance of the every-member can- 
vass through prayer, preae>^!ng ard instuction of all the j^eoplt 
about the objects included in the program. 



2fi MINUTED OF TH -• SW ^Y RUN' B\PT1-T ASSOCIATION 

We would recommend also that a simple org-anization be set up 
in the Association consisting' of the Executive Committee or a 
special committee appointed by the chair to function in putting 
on the eevry-member canvass in eevry church in the Association 
and in conserving- the results; that a similar organization in each 
local church be set up consisting of a committee from the Board 
of Deacons or a special committee appointed by the church to act 
with the pasior in directing the canvass in the local church. 

W. W. RIMMER. 
Resolved, That the Boar dof Trustees of Boiling Springs Junior 
College be and they are hereby ordered and directed to negotiate 
a loan not to exceed Five Thousand (S5,000,.00) Dollars to pro- 
vide the necessary equipment for the standardization of said 
Junior College.

R3P0R1' ON THE ORPHANAGE, NOW MILLS HOME, 



MINUTES OF SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 9 

AT raOMASVILLE, N. C. 

On November 11th, 18S5, the first child was received. The last 
one enrolled runs the number up to 2721 children. 

For year ending December 31, 1928. Number now in the Ken- 
nedy Home 130, at Thomasville 507 — 637. Number enrolled from 
the beginning, 2721. 

The Kennedy Home is the eastern branch of the Orphanage 
located at Kinston, N. C, it has been in operation since 1914. It 
and Thomasville is under the same management. At present Mr. 
R. F. Hough is the superintendent. Address Kinston, N. C., Route 3. 

For six years the Mothers Aid work has been in operation. Miss 
Hattie Edwards has been in charge of this work for four years. 
\Vc are now aiding in their ov,-n homes 300 children with 70 
mothers. Those added to the num.ber in the orphanage makes 916 
now in the care of North Carolina Baptists. 

So during the 42 years of our history we have aided in Mothers 
Aid and all 3266 children. 

Children are received between the ages of two and twelve and 
are dismissed according to preparation rather than age. 

We receive from 50 to 100 applications a month and most of 
them, are turned away for lack of room. 

There are 56 women and 22 men who devote all their time to the 
orphanage. The expense bills average $600 per day. Two barrels 
of flour, four bushels of meal, a whole beef, 12 bushels of sweet 
and six bushels of Irish potatoes and other things accordingly daily. 

The ctiildren go to school half the day and are on duty the other 
half — those old enough. 

Each cottage has is own dining room and is homelike in every 
vray poscible. 

Charity and Children, as its organ, is the right arm of the 
institution and sends out each week a good, live paper full of in- 
spiration and wholesome reading for the whole family. It wnll be 
sent to any Sunday school in clubs of ten or more subscriptions to 
one address for sixty cents or $6.00 for ten copies a whole year. 

Perhaps no other orphanage in all the world is so bound up with 
Sunday schools as ours. Almost from the beginning our chief sup- 
port has com.e from the once-a-month collection taken in Sunday 
schools. In recent years the Thanksgiving offering has been of 
immense help. But out of more than 2200 Sunday schools less 
than 600 contribute regularly to the orphanage. This should not- 
be. We recommend a club of Charity and Children in every Sun- " 
day school in our association, and a great Thanksgiving offering 
this year and urge the once-a-month collection in Sunday schools. 

Respectfully submitted, Com.mittee, 

M. M. HUNTLEY. 
REPORT FOR HOSPITAL 

The growing demands and the enlarged ser^'^ce rendered by our 
Hospital in Winston-Salem have demonstrated the need of healing 
in the Christian program. Literally thousands have gone from 
every part of the State seeking deliverance from the bondage of 
d.fomiry and disease and thej^ have been received into the open

hearts of our Home for the Sick. Hundreds of these could never 
have had proper hospital care had they not gone to our hospital, 
because they had no money to pay for this service. But the hos- 
pital took them in, and scores of cur boys and girls who were de- 
formed and destined to be invalids for life were made well and 
strong. Manv fathers and mothers now happily care for the lamiij 
around the fireside who would ha-e been in their graves had the 
hospital not heard their cry and took them in. Only eternity 
will reveal the blessed results. Suffice it to say that m the six 
vears of Christian mmistry there have been 12,000 patients admit- 
ted to our institution. At least five thousand of these have been 
charity or part pay patients. 

Th3 number of charity patients increases each year. Last year 
we cared for 345 free and 1.053 part pay patients, makmg a grand 
total 1,380 who received help from our instituion. Of this nuniber 
16 died and 1,364 returned home cured or improved. Could there 
be a more wonderful proof of the approval of the great Physician 
than this record. If human suffering constitutes a call tor 
•Christian service; if a sick moneyless brother needs our sympathy 
and help; if human life is worth saving at all; then our nospital 
which saves thousands as part of the program of our Lord ana 
if, v/crthv of our prayers and support. 

This year has brought an even greater demand than ever before 
for free service. Not less than 1.500 Wll call on us during .he 
y^-ar Tf we help all of thesa poor suffering Baptists, we will have 
to srend at least S50.000.00. Indications now are that we will 
not have more than $15,000.00 from Mother's Day off ering and we 
will get about n0,000.00 from the Duke Fund. The problem 
how 3hall we raise the other 5^25.000.00 necessary to care for these

The Outlook 

For a great junior college, vrith curriculum so varied and wide 
in scope as to challenge and enlist the thousands of youth of college 
age in. this the world's greatest cotton textiling, most strategic 
Baptist stronghold; and, at the same time, to elicit the recognition 
of the North Carolina State Board of Education, and preclude the 
necessity of a rival state or municipal junior college Vv-ithin this 
great section, was never so bright. With more than 1,000 mes- 
sages this year, in sermon, address, denominationl and evangelistic 
appeal, ail of western piedmont Carolina, from the mountains on 
out across the plains, has been subsolied and sown down for Christ- 
ian education; and. the plain, Bible-loving, Christian education- 
seeking people are beginning to voice no uncertain conviction that 
right here, where are found the folks, the faith, the fiance, the 
friends, the fortitude, the farm.s, the factories, the fame and the 
favors of a kindly Providence, can and shall be bulit a great 
Baptist junior college, second to none in the land. Support it dur- 
ing its incipency. its first two years; then, there wnll come to it 
students by the hundreds, money by the thousands, friends by the 
multitudes, and prestige beyond measure. 
Recommendations 

To prosecute this great program are herewith submitted for 
your consideration and action. 

First. That successors be elected to the following trustees, 
whose tenure of service expire this year. They are, by associa- 
tions: 

K-ngs Mountain— Rev. J. Vv^ Suttle, Dr. Zeno Wall, Mr. Z. R. 
Walker, Mr. W. W. W'ashburn, Mr. D. F. Hord. 

Sr,ndy Run — Dr. W\ A. Ayres, Rev. C. C. Matheney, Rev. A. T. 
Stoutm're. Rsv. R. N. Childress, ...r. J. J. Edwards, Mr. G. B. 



MINUTES OF SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 13_ 



Pruette. 

Gaston County— Mr. W. J. Frances, Mr. R. F. Craig. 

Second. That we spare no effort in meeting every requirement 
for such junior colleges, and seek, by pulpit, press, prayer, person- 
ality, perseverance, and by cooperation, the full realization of the 
Mission of Boiling Springs College in building and extending the 
Kingdom of our Lord to the uttermost parts of the earth. 

Third. That, between this time and the meeting of the North 
Carolina Baptist State Convention in Shelby, November 12-14, we 
prosecute, in the Kings Mountain and Sandy Run Associations, a 
great, constructive, inspirational, Centennial Pledge Payment 
Campaign to raise the remaining bonded indebtedness, amountmg 
to $11,755.04, so that the school may realize from the Centennial 
percentages much needed endowment, and money for equipment 
necessary for standardization, which is the only salvation of the 
institution. 

Fourth. That, as in the past, the Association form plans for 
reimbursing this year the institution for current ministerial tui- 
tion given to its 22 preachers (9 Academy and 13 College), and 
the half tuition of four children of ordained Baptist preachers; 
also, that plans be formulated, as in the past for liquidating past 
accrued deficits on the high school, come to the State Convention 
out of debt, thus commanding the sympathy and endorsement of 
the state leaders for our great cause. 

1. Total amount of tuition given $1,210.00 

2. Total deficits accrued 6,505.26 

3. Total to be provided for in order to ''Clean the Slate"__$7,715.26 

STATE MISSIONS 

During the past century of their organized life North Carolina 
Baptists have wrought well and the smile of God's approval has 
been upon them. They have grown from a weak, struggling band 
of a few thousand to nearly 400,000; they have gone from extreme 
poverty to comparatively riches; and from almost no facilities for 
training their leadership to seven colleges in this State and three 
South-wide institutions. 

And yet our task of making North Carolina a great Baptist 
Commonwealth is far from being complete. Reliable statistics 
reveal the fact that more than one-half of all the people in North 
Carolina are not yet even nominal Christians. In other words, 
there are considerably more than a million people in this good 
State who do not claim Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord and King. 

Since about 48 church members out of every 100 in this State 
are Baptists, that fact places a tremendous responsibility on us 
to be faithful and diligent in evangelizing this great multitude that 
is looking to us for religious influence and guidance. 

Our General Board is seeking to solve the mission problem in 
North Carolina through its 83 missionary pastors that are serving 
165 churches, many of which could not have adequate pastoral 
service but for the timely aid of our Board. Approximately $32,- 
500 of the $89,000 budget for State Missions was approjDriated to 
this phase of the work this yes^i^ 



14 MINUTES OF SANDY RUN BAPTJST ASSOCIATION 



The Board is still further attacking its mission problem in this 
State through its Evangelistic Staff of three men; through its 
Sunday School Department with three regular field workers, three 
Associat'.onal workers and numerous volunteer workers in Associa- 
tional Enlargement Campaigns, through its B. Y. P. U. department 
v;ith four regular field v.orkers. three associational workers and 
volunteer workers in Associational Campaigns, through its W. M. 
U. Department with two regular v^orkers.in the field and -other 
volunteer helpers; and through the Preachers' School, work among 
students in our colleges, etc. 

Recommendations 

1. That each church in this Association put forth its best effort 
to win to Christ all the possibilities within its reach, and train 
its membership for the most effective service possible, utilizing 
£uch agencies of our General Board as may be necessary and avail- 
able. 

- 2. That the stronger churches in this Association help the 
weaker ones to get on their feet, acting as a kind of big brother, 
giving counsel and leadership, and if necessary, more substantial 
help. We recommend that our Executive Committtee deal with 
this matter in an organized way. 

3. That in the selection of the Executive Committee of this 
Association the different groups of our organizations, such as the 
Sunday School, W. M. S., and B. Y. P. U., be represented, and that 
thj various sections of the Association be represented. 

4. Ihat cur churches co-orerate w^ith our General Board in solv- 
ing our great mission problem at home and -abroad, that they^put 
on a thorough every member canvass in November or December, 
that all our members be asked t-^ contribute regularly, according 
to the Bible plan,, to the Co-operative Program, and that our church 
treasurers be urged to forv ard "■ romijuy. ?t least once a month, 
' uch funds to Walters Durham, Treasurer, Raleigh, N. C. 

5. That we endorse the effort the General jc^oard is putting on 
to raise $25,000 on State Missions Day in October through our 
Sunday Schools with which to wir^e out the debt on State Missions.

, 1; TION 1929 

Despite the hindrances of satan, the Lord's d'sciples have length- 
ened the cords and strengthened the stakes during the past year. 

The burdensome debt on our Board has been reduced until, on 
May 1. 1929, it stood at $802,506.88. The plan for reducing tha 
debt is to apply to it. 10 per cent of all receipts from the Co-opera- 
tive i'rogram, all special gifts so designated, and all proceeds 
from, the sale of properties owned by the Board, and which are 
not now in use for Mission purposes. 

"Wc> have in our fi-^ Ids 1.392 chuiches, 744 of which are self-sup- 
porting, while 960 own their houses of worship. There are 150,000 
members of these churches; and they contributed last year for 
their ov.m v/ork $575,000, while the Board gave $540,000 toward 
the development and extension of the cause of JVlissJcns. Last year 
there were 12,264 baptisms, an average of about 33 every day. 



MINUTER OF SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION li 



These churches are organized in the same manner as we are. 
Some of their conventions have Home and Foreign Mission Boards. 
The native churches support our schools, and have their own 
schools. There were 486 schools last year wnth 21,000 pupils. 
Our Board contributed to less than 100 of these schools. 

The doors of challenging opportunities are still open. We must 
work while it is -day, for the night comcth. Certain laws calculat- 
ed to affect the whole program are being enacted in some coun- 
tries where our workers labor. 

All our missionaries have been enabled to return to their fields 
in China; but all is not clear there as yet. 

Latin America is betwixt two mighty forces — despotic autocracy 
in politics and religion, headed up in Roman Catholic determina- 
tion to dominate, and free democracy headed up in a struggling 
mmor.ty oi Protestant Christians. 

Europe is still staggering under the burdens levied by the great 
war. and the Roman hierarchy is rapidly regaining her place of 
authority over the people of those countries. Yet the message of 
our evangels there is being well received in many quarters. Last 
year in Rumania there were 4,525 baptized — the largest number 
ever reported from any field in any year. 

Nigeria is one of the most encouraging fields. .A great mass 
movement is on. Whole towns, which have never been visited by 
^. missionary or even an ordained minister, are turning to Christ- 
ianity. Our forces there are inadequate to handle the situation. 

Everywhere there are evidences of sweeping changes in thought 
and action of the peoples. Our missionaries are in the thick of 
these problems, — delicate, perplexing and difficult. They plead for 
the support of our prayers along with our money. Let us hold 
forth the example and pattern in Christlike living here that tho 
word may sound forth unto the uttermost parts of the earth. 
Respectfully submitted, 

ROSCO C. SMITH. 
REPORT ON MiNiSTERL4L RELIEF 
The care of our aged ministers and the widows of the deceased 
ministers is a prime obligation upon ail the churches— not on.y a 
singile church but all the churches as they co-operate in the State 
^T\d Southern Baptist Conventions. 

The work of raising money for the old and worn-out preacher* 
and their wndows has a characteristic all its own. Every gift of 
money by the churches, W'hether it be to orphans, to missions 07 
or education or to the sick, is an investment of which some return 
ir. expected. 

We give to the orphan to help develop him into a useful man, 
±o the old preachers because he has been a useful man. No return 
comes back from the gift, nor ccn the -spirit of commercialism 
entex* into it. 

We give money to support the missionaries in order that they

for leadership in the matter of the care and support of the old 
preachers, by creation of the Relief and Annuity Board with head- 
quarters at Dallas, Texas. 

The funds administered by this board for relief work comes 
from two sources: First, from the gifts through the coopera- 
tion program, and second, from invested funds. 

We feel that these veterans of the cross are the Lambs of the 
Lord, and that as Jesus said to Peter: "P>ed my Lambs," in like 
manner he, our blessed Lord, is saying unto every individual 
Baptist in the Sandy Run Association, "Feed my Lambs for me." 
Let every pastor and every messenger here today go back to his 
respective church and urge the loyal support of the Co-operated 
Program so that our Board can help every needly Lamb of our 
Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 

- J. A. BROCK. 
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
I'm to write and speak today on "Christian Education"; and 
Christian education is nothing more than education in a Christian 
atmosphere, under Christian auspices, and for Christian purposes. 
A Christian school is a school with Christ in the center of it — a 
school founded, and furnished, and fiananced and fathered by the 
followers of the Lord Jesus Christ — a school where the teachers 
know and impart the viewpoint of Christ, for to the Christian 
astronomer, Christ is the bright and morning star: 
To the Christian bologist, He is the abundant life, 
To the Christian engineer, He is the new and living way. 
To the Christian florist, He is the rose of Sharon, 
To the Christian sculptor, He is the living stone. 
To the Christian geologist, He is the Rock of Ages, 
To the Christian horticulturist. He is the fine vine. 
To the Christian occulist, He is the light of the eye. 
The Christian teacher is always like Charles Kingsley, who walk- 
ing out into the woods one day, said: "I am impressed that every- 
thing I see has a meaning. Everything I see seems to be full of 
God." Verily, "Earth s crammed with Heaven, and every common 
bush afire with God." 

In 1904 some of the leaders in the Kings Mountain Association 
felt that the time had come to establish a Christian school in our 
midst, and so expressed themselves by their vote at the association 
being held with the church at Zoar; and another group of like 
minded leaders in the Sandy Run Association had seen the same 
vision and felt the same imperative need. Hence joined hands 
with the brethren of our association in establishing Boiling Springs 
High School at Boiling Springs; and surely the unmistakableness 
of their vision, and the wisdom of their undertaking can be seen 
on every hand. But after twenty years of fruitful service our 
school, because of the ability of the state to extend her educa- 
tional arms, to every boy and girl in North Carolina, was com- 
pelled to either close the doors of our school, or open them still 
wider. The leaders of these two great associations faced the ques- 



MINUTES OF SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 17^ 

tion with both seriousness and frankness. After, therefore, much 
prayer and discussion, we felt that a long and steep road lay be- 
tween us and the establishment of a standard junior college, but 
some of us felt, as our blessed Lord must have felt when He 
i came to where the roads forked — one leading back home, and the 
other up to Calvary — that we would have to go on up the hill of 
sorrow and suffering and death, and so, bj?^ the grace of God, we 
faced the up hill road — began the steep climb. 

Did we make a mistake? Had we better turn back even now? 

Radicalism would say, "Yes." Materialism would say "Yes.'' 

I Atheism would say, '*Yes". But surely our Savior would say, 

I ''No". Would say "Go, and, lo I am with you always, even unto 

the end of the world." 

, But brethren, the leaders cannot go alone. You'll have to go 
j M'ith them — praj'' with them — sacrifice with them, and devote a 
ij portion of your time, and give a definite part of your income to 
equipping and endowing of our school, and until our schools can 
be enlarged and more endowment secured, our churches — every 
one of them — will be compelled to give a definite amount, each 
year, to the upkeep of our school. 

May we, therefore, on tbis day, resolve. 

First, That we are going to see to it that Boiling Springs 
Junior College is properly equipped, and filled with students, and 
manned and endowed. 

Second. That we are going to -ask our churches to place this 
school in their budgets — to give a definite amount to the school 
each year. 

Third. That we are going to finish the payment of our pledges 
to the Centennial Fund at the earliest possible date, therby help- 
ing all of our other Christian schools. 

Respectfully, ■ ...'

MINUTES OF SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION B. Y. P. U. 

On August 18, 1929, at Bethel church, Ellenboro, N. C, more 
than a hundred B. Y. P. U. members of Sandy Run Association 
gathered together to get new ideas and enthusiasm to carry 
home to our Unions. 

Mr. Kenneth Dobbins, our president, presided and the printed 
program was followed as near as possible. 

We had with us our State President. Mr. James A. Ivey, who 
^vas the principal .speaker of the day. Another great feature was 
the wonderful demonstration program put on by the Carolina 
Unions. 

The following officers were elected to serve the coming year; 
President, Kenneth Dobbins; Assistant President, W^ade Matheny; 
Vice-President, Zon Roberson; Secretary-Treasurer, Ruth Pearsey; 
Pianist. Mrs. J. W. Hicks. 

District Leaders: First District, L. R. Jolley; Second District, 
John Bruce; Third District, E. C. Flack; Fourth District, D. C^ 
Stalling. 

Jrma Ray Roberson. Junior and Intermediate leader.

Banners were awarded to the unions making the highest per- 
centage for the year: Caroleen Juniors, 97 per cent; Caroleen In- 
termediates, 86 per cent. Florence Seniors, 96 per cent. These 
were the unions who carried the banners home. 

Realizing that we needed a goal or some definite aim to work 
towards the folowing resolutions were made and adopted for the 
coming year: 

First. That we organize at least 15 new unions. 

Second. That we have 12 new A-1 unions. 

Third. Have 10 new general organizations. 

Fourth. Have 5 A-1 general organizations. 

Fifth. Give at least 900 awards. 

The meeting adjourned to meet with Alexander on next year. 
REPORT OF W. M. U. OF SANDY RUN ASSOCIATION 

The seventeenth annual meeting of the Woman's Missionary 
Union, auxiliary to the Sandy Run Association, w^as held August 
27th and 28th, 1929, in the Haynes Memorial Church of Avondale. 
The attendance w^as good, ranging about 300 women, representing 
35 societies, including junior organizations. 

It was an inspiration to see how ably the women of Avondale 
welcomed and entertained the visiting host. They were so well 
organized for the task, and the work so well planned that every 
detail was cared for. 

Our prayer was that this might be truly a missionary meeting, 
led and directed by the Holy Spirit. "We were especially fortunate 
in having for our Tuesday evening speaker Dr. Wade Bostic of 
China. Both he and his wife added greatly to the missionary 
spirit of the meeting. Mrs. Jones came over from Raleigh and 
was at her best in her address. We had great cause to thank God 
for the meeting and the splendid spirit of fellowship which pre- 
vaded our entire meeting. 

In many respects the report of the year's work is disappointing, 
for we had hoped to organize many new societies and reclaim 
all the failing ones. Our efforts were rewarded with only partial 
success, but we feel that we came in contact with a great part 
of our work and know the situation much better than Vv'e did one 
yearr. ago. If the pastors and interested laymen of all of our 
churches wiir strive by word and deed to encourage the w^omen in 
this great missionary enterprise during the coming year we feel 
sure our next year's report will more than meet the hopes of 
the two superintendents. Without the aid of the pastors and men 
of the various churches our work is greatly hand capped. 

Our aim for the year is that each society will hold at least three 
mission study courses, one this fall, one in the first quarter of next 
year, and one in the second quajter; express in some material 
way our love for and our interest jn our schools, Boiling Springs 
Junior College, Alexander Schoo: and S. Mt. W. M. Societies as is 
possible. Let us not be satisfied until we have done all that God 
requires of us, in keeping ourselves enlightened, helping to enlight- 
en others, and spread'ng our organizations throughout our entire 
association. Let us adept our yjai's motto, "Holding Forth the

effort.

THE CO-OPERATIVE PROGRAM 

This is the nanaemider which Southern Baptists have chosen to 
carry on their generil work. It ought to commend itself because 
it sets forth two great principles without M'hich we can not hope 
to succeed in our common task; namely, CO-OPERATION, and 
PROGRAM. We must organize in order to co-operate and we 
must "programize in order to prosecute the task. This plan too, 
ought to commend itself to all mtelligent Baptists because it gives 
fair and equitable consideration to all our denominational enter- 
prises, both state-wide and south-wide. 

The Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention, 
charged with the responsibility of studying the whole field of 
operation, recommends to the Convention the allocation of funds 
to the various enterprises or agencies through which we do our 
work. The General Board of our State Convention follows the 
i^ame plan with reference to our State work. This program is built 
around a suggested goal or budget and each church is earnestly 
advised to adopt a worthy budget, make an every-member canvas, 
and send in, as undesignated, all the funds raised for the general 
work. 

This plan makes every dollar given do service for our whole 
program, which Is wor'.d-wide. It also makes every contributing 



MINUTES OF SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 21 

Baptist to become four square in his support of all our enter- 
prises. It also removes the emotional appeal which might swell 
the receipts of one object and leave another, equally worthy object, 
without funds. . .

MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 11 

The Report on Religious Literature was read and discussed 
by Rev. Z. D. Harrill. 

REPORT OF KFLKilOVS LITERATI RK 

With the continued progress in education and the extensive use oi: 
the secular press it becomes more necessary that the churclies and Chris- 
tians give religious literature a permanent place in their homes and live-^. 
While our people are readers, they do not place great emphasis on reli- 
gious literature. While we must emphasize the reading of the Bible, it 
is also necessary that the Biblical Recorder, Home and Foreign Fields, 
Royal Service, Charity and Children and other periodicals by our denom- 
ination be read extensively that we may be both an informd and a 
growing people. 

The Baptist Book Shop, of Raleigh, N. C, carries a complete line of 
the best religious books in print. Our people should be encouraged Lo 
purchase books and read them. Many tracts can be had from the Baptist 
Sunday School Board, Nashville, Tenn., for the asking. These tracts deal 
with every phase of our Christian and denominational life. 

Enlightenment is always the standard of constructive action. People 
do not go beyond their enlightenment, therefore, it is necessary that ev- 
ery Baptist seek to be an informed Baptist. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Z. D. HARRILL 

The report was adopted. 

Preparatory for the Sermon, Rev. M. D. Blanton read Matt. 
20: 1-6 for the scripture lesson and Dr. S. E. Welchel led hi 
prayer. 

The Annual Associational Sermon was delivered by Rev. J. 
A. Brock, pastor of the Henrietta-Caroleen Field. The Associa- 
tion is greatly indebted to Brother Brock for that wonderful ser- 
mon preached from 1 Cor. 3:9. The great sermon was delivered 
with power and was very much appreciated. 

The Moderator appointed J. L. Scruggs on the Finance 
Committee with instructions to receive minute money. 

Rev. M. M. Huntley, pastor host to the Association was re- 
cognized and announcements were made regarding dinner and 
entertainment. A bountiful dinner was served by the ladies of 
the Spencer Baptist Church on the church vard. Prayer by 
Dr. Zeno Wall. 

Afternoon Session 

Song, "We're Marching to Zion." Devotional exercises were 
conducted by Dr. J. M. Haymore. 

The first order of business for the afternoon session was the 
report on Sunday School Work, read by Grover Harrill. The 
report was adopted after a brief discussion by Brother Harrill. 

THK SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The Sunday School is the greatest evangelizing and enlisting agency 
of the church. More stress should be placed on this organization be- 



12 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

cause it is through the Sunday School that we reach most of our people. 

There are fifty-one Sunday Schools in our Association with an enroll- 
ment of over 10,000 pupils. The average attendance for the past year 
was 6,2 57. Of the 864 baptisms last year in our churches, 4 20 came 
fi'om the Sunday Schools. This is only one of the many contributions 
we have made to the church life of our Association. 

During the past year we held twelve special meetings. At each of 
these meetings we had an inspiring address of Sunday School work. The 
attendance exceeded 5,0 0. Sixteen of our Sunday Schools are regular 
reporters. Thes have an enrollment of 4,3 5 8 and an average attendance 
of 3,104. Their offerings for the past year were $7,966.88. Spencer 
leads with an offering of $1,733.46 and Caroleen second with $1,295.49. 

Some of our churches have very large enrollments. Cliffside leads 
with 6 59 and Forest City comes second with 64 9. Caroleen leads in av- 
erage attendance, having an average of 86%, Goods Creek comes second 
with 81%. 

There are twelve standard Sunday schools in our Association. While 
the average of Standard Sunday Schools for the State is less than 1%, 
we have about 24% of our schools on the Standard. 

It is interesting to note that the best schools are regular in attend- 
ance at our monthly meetings, therefore let us urge all the schools to 
'be represented. This will assure a greater vision and more certain suc- 
cess in the Sunday school work of our Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

G. C. HARRILL 

Dr. Charles E. Maddry, General Secretary of the State Con- 
vention, was recognized and given most of the time allotted to 
Sunday School Work by consent of Brother Harrill. Dr. Mad- 
dry brought a great message on the work of the State Mission 
Board and placed special emphasis upon the Centennial Cam- 
paign which is now coming to a close. This message will long 
be remembered by all those present. 

Dr. 0. R. Sams, Vice President of Mars Hill College, was in- 
troduced to the Association. Dr. Sams spoke very briefly on 
the Junior College work, prefacing his remarks with well chosen 
words of greeting. 

The report on Boiling Springs Junior College was read as 
follows:

work of the students is also recognized by the State Board of Education 
in certification of teachers for the public schools of the state. Your col- 
lege opened its session for 19 30-31 on Sept. 2nd with the largest enroll- 
ment in its history, there being 9 7 registered in the Junior College De-

all the standard requirements as to physical equipment and faculty quali- 
fications. Every department is headed by a teacher holding a Master's

Dr. Zeno Wall has been elected president, who serves without pay. 
Prof. J. D. Huggins is Dean of the college and principal of the high 
school. Prof. O. P. Hamrick is bursar, and Miss Etta Curtis is Dean of

rooms and to teach certain high school subjects, to the County Board of 
Education of Cleveland county for the ensuing year. 

Your Board of Trustees has caused an audit to be made and a fin- 
ancial statement to be prepared of its affairs, which report is not yet in

Amount of liabilities over assets $12,203.73 

Against this indebtedness there are the unpaid pledges of the Cen- 
tennial Campaign. To date there has been paid on the Centennial Cam- 
paign pledges, $39,903.04, and after a balance of $96.96 is paid, it is 
hoped that the full amount of the unpaid pledges will be available to 
Boiling Springs Junior College. 

The terms of the following Trustees expire with the meeting of their 
respective Associations, viz: A. I. Jolly, J. U. Rollins, Rev. J. A. Brock, 
W. L. Hicks, Rev. W. W. Rimmer. 

The Trustees make the following recommendations: 
First: That the churches put the college in their budget for a de- 
finite amount to be paid each year toward reducing the indebtedness and 
paying current expenses until such time as an adequate endowment shall 
be provided for Boiling Springs Junior College. 

Second: That the respective associations endorse the movement to 
encourage farmers to plant and cultivate one acre of cotton for the use 
and benefit of Boiling Springs Junior College, the trustees to furnish the 
fertilizer and the planting seed, and the tenant to have the seed for ex- 
pense of ginning and cultivating and delivering the cotton to Boiling 
Springs.

Third. That the Associations endorse the movement inaugurated by 
the women to contribute a chicken for the purpose of procuring books 
loi- the library, and co-operate whole-heartedly with our good women to 
this end. 

Fourth. That we commend the cause of Christian Education as ex- 
emplified and maintained by Boiling Springs Junior College, and urge our 
members to provide a donation in their wills to the endowment of Boil- 
ing Springs Junior College. 

Fifth. That a determined drive and organization be planned to put 
on after the meeting of the State Convention for the purpose of paying" 
all pledges made to the Centennial Campaign for Boiling Springs Junior 
College.

On motion to adopt, the report was discussed by Mr. J. H. 
Quinn, Dr. Zeno Wall, and Prof. J. D. Huggins. The Moderator 
asked how many would plant an acre of cotton for the college 
and ten signified their willingness by standing. Dr. C. E. Mad- 
drey explained that sixty cents of every dollar yet collected on 
the Centennial would go direct to Boiling Springs. Report was 
adopted. 

The report on Mills Ho^^^^^ wat^ read by Rev. T. M. Hester as 
follows: 

KEPOKT 0\ MILLS HOME 

Since 188 5 this institution has been answering to the roll call of the 
institution set apart to carry on the work of Him "who went about doing 
good." Since its establishment first as Thomasville Orphanage and for 
the past few years as Mills Home, more than 3 500 children have been 
careS for. While many destitute cases have been turned away for lack 
of room and funds, many of these are being cared for through Mothers' 
Aid. 

Children are received between the ages of two and twelve years ana 
dismissed according to preparation rather than age. The training ranges 
from the Kindergarten through the High School and from simple useful 
labor to work combining the skill of head and hand. 

It costs about $25.00 per month to support a child; this includes 
everything the child needs. For support the institution depends upon 
the aid it receives from the churches, Sunday Schools, and the Thanks- 
giving Offering. Our children ai-e our greatest asset and the only hope 
of the age; neglected they become our liability and despair. This is es- 
pecially true of parentless children. This Home is the only Door of 
Hope for hundreds of children. 

We recommend that our Sunday Schools set aside one Sunday's olTer- 
ing for the Home. Second, that the Sunday Schools take the Charitv 
and Children in sufficient quantity to place one in each home. Third,

REPOKT ON B. Y. P. U. 

It is with joy that we come to report on the year's work. This has 
been a good year in our Association. 

We have had an increase of seven General Organizations, five Adult, 
eleven Seniors, eight Intermediate, six Junior and seven Primary Unions. 
Making a total of eighty-seven Unions. 

The Associational Convention met with the Alexander church. We 
had a great meeting. Rev. James A. Ivey brought a great message on 
"That Person On The Outside." 

At this meeting the request was made that each Union send $1.00 to 
Miss Ruth Piercy, Caroleen, N. C, for the Convention expenses durin^i 
1931. 

The following officers were elected for next year: Kenneth Dob- 
bins, President; Zon Robinson, Vice President; Ruth Piercy, Secretary; R. 
L. Jolley, Chorister; Mrs. W. J. Hicks, Pianist; with the following Group 
Leaders: Sarah Flack, Yates Kendrick, Orell Blanton, Eutha Neighbors. 

In the State there are 2 30 7 churches with a total of 2273 Unions. 

In our Association we have 87 Unions. This is a fine record but re- 
member that there are 17 churches that do not have a Union, We urge

On motion for the adoption of the report Mr. Kenneth Dob- 
bins and Dr. S. E. Welchel brought outstanding messages on B. 
Y. P. U. work. The report was adopted. 

The Association stood and sang "All Hail the Power of 
Jesus Name." 

The next item on the program was an address by Dr. Walt- 
er N. Johnson. The Text was, "The Field in the World," Matt. 
13:38. Only a master with a master's knowledge, vision, pas- 
sion and power could bring the message heard at this time. 
Greater messages are not heard. The Association is greatly in- 
debted to the Program Committee and Dr. Johnson for this 
great message. 

With the close of the message the iVssociation again stood 
and sang "All Hail The Power of Jesus Name." Indeed the 
night session was a coronation service. 

On motion the Association adjourned. 

Prayer by Dr. T. C. Holland.

tess to the Association's 18th birthday. There were 305 delegates who 
registered, and many others coming in later. 

As we reach this 18th milestone we cannot but pause a moment 
and thank God for His loving guidance along the way, and for the faith- 
ful efficient officers that He has so graciously provided for the Associa- 
tion during these 18 years. Since we last met the ladies of this Associa-

As we now stand on the threshold of a new associational year with 
the closed gate behind us and a wide opening gate before us, let us re- 
solve to go forward joyfully claiming the promise "According to your 
faith be it unto you." Entering this new year of labor for Christ and 
His cause, may we each reconsecrate and rededicate ourselves anew to 
Him who did so much for womanhood. Let us undertake and expect 
great things from the Lord, and make our plans wide and large. 

We earnestly desire the support, cooperation and prayers of thp 
pastors, Superintendents of Sunday Schools and all the men of our Asso- 
ciation in aiding us to keep on growing and enlarging the woman's work 
of this Association.

The Association stood and sang "Amazing Grace," which 
was led by Mr. J. R. Robbins. 

The next item on the program was the Cooperative pro- 
gram. The Moderator asked for the reading of all the report 
before any discussion. The reports were read as follows: 

IIEPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

North Carolina Baptists are this year completing one hundred years 
of organized effort. At the very beginning our fathers made plans for 
evangelizing North Carolina. If the record of these one hundred years 
were examined, it would be found that many of our strong and generous 
churches in the leading towns and centers of the state, were organized 
and planted through the sacrificial labors of faithful state missionaries. 

Sometimes we hear the idea advanced that soon we will have finish- 
ed the job of State Missions and that all the needy and promising fields 
will be occupied. But with the ever changing conditions and the rapirl 



18 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RTTN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

growth of the state in industrialism, in good roads, in public education, 
in the rapid shift of the population from the country to the town and 
city, there comes witli every new generation new opportunities and new 
responsibilities for evangelizing and saving our own people. 

In the percentage division of our Co-operative funds, State Mis- 
sions received twenty cents out of the dollar. In addition to this, all 
funds given through the Sunday Schools on State Mission Day, the last 
Sunday in October, goes to State Missions as an extra amount. 

This year there are eighty-four missionaries in the employ of the 
Board, serving about one hundred and fifty churches. The Board is car- 
ing for the Sunday School, W. M. U., B. Y. P. U. and Student Work. 
This year we took the Indian Work among the Indians in Robeson 
county and the Cherokee Work in Swain county. 

The task is greater and the need is more imperative today than 
when our fathers began tlie work one hundred years ago. 

May we for the coming year carry on more successfully through 
and under the leadership of the Holy Spirit than our worthy Fathers did 
in their day and generation.

REPORT OX HOME MISSIONS 

The Home Misison Board is the Southwide agency through which 
Southern Baptists are doing their Home Mission work. The field of op- 
eration for this Board is the territory of the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion, the four Western provinces of Cuba and the Canal Zone. 

The work is divided into the following departments: Direct and 
Independent Missions, including work among the Foreigners, Indians, 
Negroes, and City Mission work, with Dr. J. W. Beagle as Superintend- 
ent; Mountain Missions and Schools including evangelism, industrial 
centers and mountain schools, with Dr. J. W. O'Hara as Superintendent; 
Mission work in Cuba with Dr. M. N. McCall as Superitendent; Mission 
work in Panama Canal Zone, with Stephen Witt as Superintendent; mis- 
sions to the Jews, with Rev. Jacob Gartenhans as missionary; mission 
study with Mrs. Una Roberts Lawrence as Director; W. M. U. Field 
work, with Miss Emma Leachman as Field Worker; Church Building 
Loan Department, with the Executvie Secretary as Superintendent, and 
Rev. Geo. F. Austin as Field Representative. 

The work for the ensuing year was laid out as instructed by the 
Convention on the basis of the cash receipts of the previous year. These 
I'eceipts were $407,357.58 on the Cooperative Program and $32,397.18 
Supplemental receipts, making a total of $439,754.76. The Board set 
aside $250,000.00 to be paid on interest and principal of the debt. The 
Board has set itself definitely to the task of paying its debts. Sine 3 
September, 1928, it has paid in interest and principal on its indebted- 
ness $713,987.57. 

Our people need to recognize the tremendous importance just now 
of our Home Mission work. Cities are growing very rapidly, and indus- 
trial communities are springing up, which gives us a new set of mission 
problems. The tide of emigration is turning toward the south. All of 
these things create a real need for Home Missions.

On Bedlow's Island in the harbor of New York stands the statute of 
Liberty holding in its hand the finest electric light in the world. That 
statute does not convey the exact truth. Liberty does not enlighten any- 
body. Only the enlightened know how to use liberty. Enlightenment 
can only come from the Christ who said "I am the light of the world." 
and "If the Son shall make you free ye shall be free indeed." 

The American Baptist were little more than a sect at war with the 
mores until they accepted Adonirum Judson in 1812 as their first foreign 
missionary. Then they caught the inspiration of the throbbing life o;:' 
work in foreign lands. Today they have their missionaries in half the 
great countries of the world. 

Southern Baptist have and are getting gratifying results from their 
foreign mission investments. The hand that has reached out to bless 
other nations has brought back blessings to itself. The most phenom- 
inal growth of Southern Baptist since the beginning of their missionary 
program to the nations of the world has been at home. During the 8 5 
years of active work of the Foreign Mission Board the work at home has 
grown from less than one-half million to 3,770,000 in membership. While 
the work in the foreign lands has grown to 1,400 churches, 643 of which 
are self supporting, with a membership of 161,0 5 9. Last year there 
were 13,250 baptisms on the Foreign Fields. 

The success of our Foreign Mission work should be an inspiration to 
the Baptists of this Association and of the South. Much more would 
have been accomplished if our churches had made it possible for the 
Board to take sufficient care of its missionaries and the work. Today 
there are great multitudes of young people who are called of God and 
prepared for work in Foreign lands, waiting, waiting, for funds with 
which to go. Southern Baptists should loose them and let them go. 
Consequently there are two outstanding needs today: 1. Pay the re- 
maining $615,137.32 on the Board's indebtedness, which was reduced 
$187,423.56 last year. 2. Place funds in the hands of the Board to re- 
turn all the missionaries to their God appointed work in the Foreign 
lands, and also send those waiting without further delay.

KEPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL, W INSTOX-SALE.M, X. C. 

The report for the year 1929 showed a total of 2,7 2 5 patients, of 
whom 591 were full charity patients, and 1,00 9 were part pay patients. 
Many of these would have died if the hospital had not cared for them. 
Was not this great work worth while?Our Lord said, "If you have done 
it unto one of the least, my brthren, you have done it unto me." 

Our hospital needs equipment. The constantly increasing demand 



20 MINUTES OF THE SANDY RUN P>APTIST ASSOCIATION 

tliat is being made upon our institution and services, cliallenges us to 
provide tlie new and needed equipment in order to keep in line with the 
marcli of progress. We must either do this or else lose our place in the 
hearts of our people v/ho look to us for help in sickness and need. But 
how can we do this when the demands of charity require every dollar 
that we can raise, to say nothing of keeping the hospital up-to-date in 
equipment. 

"Last year we spent $45,500.00 for charity. To help us meet this 
tremendous demand, we received from the denomination on Mother'.^ 
Day $15,500.00, and from the Duke Foundation $8,750.00. A few small 
donations supplemented these offerings, but over $19,000.00 of this had 
to be taken out of our operating account. We paid our bills, but we suf- 
fered from the need of equipment, repairs and help to do our work ef- 
fectively. 

This year, up to June 1st, 4 6 per cent of our patient days were ab- 
solute charity. That is only 5 4 percent of the patients' days brought us 
any revenue at all. The others were charity. The amount necessary to 
care for this increasing demand for this year will be at least $60,000.00, 
And yet we cannot let our sick and needy Baptists die. 

We must have a larger support for our hospital. Our people must 
learn to patronize it when they are able to pay for the services. W-j 
have the best hospital in this section of the state. Why not bring your 
friends to us, and let us care for them? 

We must put the hospital on the hearts of the people, and urge 
them to support it in a worthy way. We must talk about it; pray about 
it; and preach about it. In addition to this we can lead our people to 
remember the hospital in their wills. $15,000 Left as an endowment 
will care for 2 4 persons a year until Jesus comes again. What a glor- 
ious investment in human life and health! 

Let's i)ut our hospital deep down in our hearts, brethren. Let's 
make our offerings reach $25,000.00 next year. Then the hospital will 
care for at least 2,000 of those needy ones who come to us without 
money or price. And surely our Lord will not forget, for he said, "In- 
asmuch as ye have done it to one of these, my brethren, ye have done 
it unto me."

Due to the fact that Dr. Ayers had to go away the report 
of the Social Service was read at this time by Dr. Ayers. 

KEPOKT OX SOCIAL SERVICE 

What should be the attitude of our churches toward the great moral 
and social problems which confront us today; problems with which our 
government must deal, and whose final solution must be brought about 
by the processes of law? Can we as Christians bring a definite and 
wholesome influence to bear on the processes of law making and law en- 
forcement? Every Christian ought to vote as he prays. We recommend 

1. That all forms of Sabbath Desecration be discouraged; that we 
protest against Sunday Golf, Tennis, Baseball, and Sunday picnics. 

2. THE DIVORCE EVIL. Miss Mary B. Mullett declares for the 
past two years, there have been 16 divorces for every 100 marriages. 
We do not believe that any divorce is ever justifiable except upon Bible 
grounds. We must uphold the sanctity of the home which is one of the 
corner stones of our civilization. 

3. SALACIOUS LITERTURE AND THE SUGGESTIVE MOVING 
PICTURE. Through these agencies much of the evil is sown in the 
minds of the young which results in the breaking of the homes and the 
blighting of the lives of such a large percentage of our people. 

4. GAMBLING DEVICES. We, as Baptists, should earnestly pro- 
test against all forms of gambling at our State and County Fairs. 

5. PROHIBITION ENFORCEMENT. Never, since the enactment of 
The Association against Prohibition is spending thousands of dollars in 
a campaign of misinformation and intimidation. If ever Christians and 
patriots should stand true that time is now. Here is a resolution adopt- 
ed by the last Southern Baptist Convention and we recommend it to you.

On motion and seconded, J. A. Brock, C. C. Matheny, and

ting of any form of gambling devices at the Fair and also to 
urge the enforcement of the prohibition laws in the county. 

The Report on Ministerial Relief was read by Rev. D. J. 
Hunt. 

REPORT OX MIXISTKKIAL SUPPORT AM) RELIEF 

In all lines of work there is a demand for greater efficiency, the pas- 
tor is not expected. The pastor as the shepherd of the herd is called of 
God and commissioned to feed, lead and care for the flock. 

The needs and demands are constant, hence the service should be 
constant, and is upon the whole man, and for the bodies, minds and 
spirits of both the lost and the saved. 

The work is highly worthy of the preacher's best efforts. Thirteen 
of our town churches pay less than $1500 each to their pastors, while 38 
pay less than $22 5 each. 

When we cotisider the expenses and the demands made on our pas- 
tors, it seems to your committee to be inadequate. Yet your committee 
believes in a sacrificial ministry for the good and not to the hurt of the 
cause. 

Relief 

The care of our aged and disabled preachers and widows and orph- 
ans of deceased preachers, deserve the prayerful attention of all our peo- 
ple. What Southern Baptists are doing through their Board for these 
servants of the Cross, is helpful but not sufficient. Let every church 
help. Literature can be obtained from the Relief Board, Dallas, Texas. 

Changes In Method 

The New Orleans Convention provided that all monies should come 
through the co-operative program into the Relief Fund.

D. J. Hunt, and C. C. Matheny spoke. 

The report was adopted. 

The last item on the program was Christian Education 
which was read by Dr. S. E. Welchel. 

REPORT 0\ CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

It is not the aim of Christian churches to take over again the whole 
task of education. Since 1860 this has been one of the chief functions 
of the state. Neither is it our purpose to enter as a competitor with 
the state in the matter of education. We welcome all the State is doing. 
Our aim is to complete the State system. We insist that education must 
not become altogether secularized. It must come under Christian ideals. 
The Christian content must be supplied by our churches and Christian 
schools. Or, the story of Germany will be repeated. Education is pow- 
er and if not under Christian control it may become a power for de- 
struction. 

We need our Christian schools for the defense and propagation of 
the Christian religion. We need our Christian schools to train our pas- 
tors and evangelists. Our Christian schools are training a host of lay 
and women workers and sending them back to our churches. They be- 
come the leaders in our churches. From our Christian schools come our 
missionaries, our educational leaders, our denominational leaders. Chris- 
tian schools are a vital necessity to our denominational life. 

Our churches must provide the necessary material equipment. We 
cannot expect our youth to attend these schools at the sacrifice of all 
material conveniences and labor for degrees that are discounted in com- 
parison with degrees from a state institution. We must not suffer in 
comparison. Our equipment must be as good. Our degrees must be as 
valuable. And more valuable! The only complete education is Chris- 
tion education! 

Respectfully submitted,

Following the motion for its adoption Dr. Welchel made a 
strong plea for Christian Education.

and Rev. J. A. Brock and J. W. Jones delegates to the Southern 
Baptist Convention. 

A motion was made to ask Dr. J. M. Haymore to come and 
conduct an associational revival meeting in the near future. 
The plan suggested was to have a large tent between Forest 
City and Alexander and get the churches to come in as they did 
at the Associational meeting. The vote was very weak. By re- 
quest of the Moderator the matter was referred to the Execu- 
tive Committee. 

The following committees reported: 

Time, Place and Preacher, October 7th and 8th, 1931, Al- 
exander Baptist Church, Sermon by Rev. J. A. Hunnicutt. 

The finance committee made a fine report and their report 
is included in the body of the statistical tables.

Association during this session.
